Ashland: Where Ya At?

220px-SOLC_250pxLooking for dinner and a show this Tuesday? Join us at 5pm as we welcome the Southern Oregon Land Conservancy to present a free community talk: Ashland, Where Ya At?

This is an opportunity to discover natural and cultural history of the southern Bear Creek Valley with beer and food in hand! Professor Pat Acklin and archeologist/historian Dr. Jeff Lelande will offer visual presentations on our region’s geography, geology and history. We will also hear short stories from local experts about our area’s birds, fish and plants.

This educational event is inspired by other fast-paced community presentations, such as Pecha Kucha (which Standing Stone welcomes several times a year), with visual aids and a timeline for each presenter. Settle in with your preferred fare and enjoy the show on our large projector screen in the main dining room.

The Southern Oregon Land Conservancy (SOLC) is our local land trust, working exclusively in the area since 1978. By cooperatively working with landowners and partners, SOLC works to preserve traditional livelihoods while also securing the wildlife habitat. They have successfully conserved thousands of acres of working farms and ranches, riverbanks, forests, parks and scenic lands. Come support and experience this active, passionate local organization!

Arrive early to grab your seat on Tuesday, April 8th. Presentations run 5-6pm, with an opportunity for questions after. For more information, call the Land Conservancy at (541) 482-3069.
