Join us in the Applegate

December 2

December 11

The Rogue Forest Restoration Partnership (RFRP) — a collaboration among federal and state agencies, and local nonprofits — is launching a multi-year forest restoration initiative at six sites across the Rogue Valley. This work is funded by a $6 million grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, with state lottery dollar.

The Applegate community is invited to join representatives from RFRP ti learn about and provide feedback on the three project sites in the Applegate Valley. We are excited to share how this ground-breaking initiative will make our forests, watersheds and communities healthier and more resilient. This is a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions.

The first meeting on Dec. 2 is to present a project overview of the three projects, and RFRP partners will discuss participants’ questions and suggestions. This meeting will be held at the Applegate Lodge, 15100 Highway 238, in the community of Applegate. The meeting starts at 6:00 p.m. and is slated to end at 8:00 p.m.

The second meeting on Dec. 11 will introduce Multi-Party Monitoring. RFRP partners will share the collaborative monitoring framework, invite engagement with the ongoing process, and consider ideas for additional co-investments in monitoring. This meeting will be held at the Applegate Valley Fire District #9, 1095 Upper Applegate Rd in Ruch. The meeting will run from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.

RSVP is not necessary for either meeting and they are open to all community members. Questions? Contact Terry Fairbanks.
