Join us for a Sense of Place Lecture!
The Legacy and Promise of Land Grant Universities and Oregon State Extension in the Gorge
After more than a century in existence, what have we learned from local Extension Services? When Ann Harris interviewed for her position at OSU Extension, she had no idea what a “land grant” university was. She also didn’t know how the Extension service connected to the university, but that’s no longer the case. From the complex history that established land-grant universities to the present day programs that provide research-based support for our economy, what impact have Extension services had on local communities like the Gorge and how have they affected our region as a whole? Join Ann Harris from OSU Extension, as she shares pictures and stories of the local Gorge Extension. From Master Gardener classes to 4-H and food preservation.
This year we are offering free admission to Sense of Place lecture events. However, producing the events is not free. We know it is a challenging time for everyone, but if you are able, please consider making a donation to support the production of this program. We are suggesting $10+ donation for each lecture you attend. We greatly appreciate your support!
