Upcoming Events:

* Sunday, Mar 14, 2PM to 4PM. Plant Lover Ramble near Eugene (area location announced with registration). Join Emerald Chapter members on our monthly casual plant meet-up. All levels of botany and native plant expertise welcome. This is not a traditional plant walk led by an expert but a group adventure. We ask that everyone wear a mask, social distance along the trail, and attend only if they are free of COVID symptoms. Due to public health concerns, we ask that attendees pre-register here.

* Monday, Mar 15, 7PM to 9PM. Online Program: A Beginnerís Adventures with iNaturalist. Presented by Mike McKeag. This will be an introduction to iNaturalist and an account of Mike's early experiences using iNaturalist, illustrating its utility as a personal field guide, learning tool, mentor in your pocket, and a springboard to exploration and intellectual adventures. This will be excellent preparation for your spring wildflower hikes and preparation for participation in the Mt PisgahArboretum Wildflower Bioblitz & the Glide Wildflower Show Bioblitz. The program will be available (live) on YouTube - link to be provided here closer to the date.

* Monday, Apr 19th, 7PM to 9PM. Online Program: Plant Succession 40 years after the Mt. St. Helens Eruption. The Weevil Empire: How Insects Rule and other stories from the Pumice Plain. Speaker John Bishop is Co-Director & Associate Dean at the College of Arts and Sciences and professor of biological sciences at Washington State University. His ecological research at Mount St. Helens is focused on the effects of herbivores on keystone plant colonists and the resulting cascading impacts on community and ecosystem development. The link for the presentation will be emailed to Emerald Chapter members in advance and will be posted here closer to the date.
