Description:
 Oregonians are known for a fierce sense of independence and a rugged individuality, qualities long associated with natural resource vocations such as logging, fishing, farming, and ranching. The state is also known for its progressive environmental policies. Our sense of connection to a place informs our values and approaches to conflict over resource and land use in our communities.

This is the focus of "Your Land, My Land: Using and Preserving Oregon's Natural Resources," a free conversation with Portland State University professor Veronica Dujon. This program is sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

At the program, we will also discuss Oregon Reads 2014: the statewide reading initiative to commemorate the centennial of Oregonís most celebrated poet, William Stafford, who was also an environmentalist. Copies of Stafford's books will be given away.
