Presentation Program 

Oil Train Safety Legislation by Conservation Director Michael Lang | Oregon has the weakest laws governing oil trains on the west coast. Find out what Friends is doing to change this.

The Multi-faceted Work of Land Trust Stewardship by Land Trust Stewardship Coordinator Sara Woods | Learn about the various types of work Friends Land Trust does to steward its preserves. We’re not always in the weeds, sometimes we’re cleaning out a barn or even in a kayak collecting frog eggs.
