Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 7-8 p.m. there will be a special program at the Shady Cove Branch Library on “Landscapes and Livelihoods: A Sustainable Future for Rural a Oregon,” with SOU professor Victoria Sturtevant.
This Oregon Humanities (formerly Oregon Council for the Humanities)-sponsored program, is a part of the statewide Conversation Project: A New Chautauqua.
Rural communities in Oregon have been buffeted by shifting natural resource policies and globalizing economies, yet family legacies, attachment to place, and traditional institutions help these communities preserve their heritage of making a living from the land. What does rural Oregon’s sustainable future look like?
