Teaching and Speaking Engagements

Upcoming Events

Friday, April 28 ~ Presentation: “Renewing Relationships with Invasive Species” at Rewild Portland Spring Benefit and Silent Auction ~ Ecotrust Natural Capital Center, 6pm-9:30 pm

Sunday, April 30 ~ Changing Tides: Citizen-Led Action for Pesticide Free Parks with Mulysa Melco of Resilience Design, hosted by Rewild Portland.

In this workshop you’ll learn about some of the concerns regarding the use of environmental toxins like herbicides in public parks and natural areas with the hope of generating momentum to build critical mass of public support for pesticide-free initiatives. We will discuss the current state of pesticide regulation, and learn how citizens can take action to steward the spaces where we, our children, and our pets access nature in our neighborhoods.

10am-4pm, $55 ~ Space is limited so register early! Held at Trillium Charter School in Portland, OR. We will also be walking to two parks – one that is managed without pesticides and one that is, so come prepared for some time outside.
