BONUS Thursday Talk: An Oregon Story

An Oregon Story: Saving Our Beaches, Farmland & More is an intimate exploration of Oregon’s decades long history of innovative land-use planning and conservation practices. You’ll meet many of the farsighted and dedicated leaders, farmers and other individuals, who worked tirelessly to create and later defend our land-use planning program, which has protected Oregon’s fertile and productive farm and ranch lands, our beaches and iconic places from urban sprawl and other inappropriate development.

An Oregon Story is a documentary film presented by the Parkdale Valley Land Trust in association with Bergman Productions. The executive producer is Jim Gilbert, a long-time nursery owner from southern Clackamas County, Oregon.

Join us in this fascinating journey that celebrates the essence of the Oregon way of life, a journey into the heart of a state unlike any other and unyielding in its commitment to protect what it holds dear.

Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6pm with food and beverages available via the Taproom window. All ages welcome and never a cover.
