Ask an Expert, “What’s up with the Owyhee?”

August 7, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Do you have burning questions about public lands that you’d rather ask a knowledgeable individual than Google? Curious about how to capture the magic of desert landscapes, why Oregon Natural Desert Association litigates to protect wildlife habitat, or how to be the most effective advocate for places you love?

Bring your toughest questions and dig in deeper with our team of experts at ONDA’s Ask an Expert happy hour series! Since challenging conversations are best held over a beer (or cider or kombucha) and alongside other curious minds, we’ll take over Base Camp Brewing Company’s patio for these open-ended dialogues.

Grow your knowledge base, exchange ideas and check out your options for getting more involved with ONDA and Oregon conservation work at these events this summer.

Ask an Expert, “What’s up with the Owyhee?” with Nicole Cordan, Project Director, U.S. Public Lands & Rivers Conservation at The Pew Charitable Trusts.

Nicole Cordan oversees Pew’s river corridor work, where she leads the team’s efforts to restore free-flowing rivers in the West to allow safe passage for salmon and other aquatic species. Nicole has written and lectured on hydroelectric power and its effects on salmon; the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, and Endangered Species Act; global climate change; federal and state water rights; and water quality standards. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Russian and eastern European studies with a minor in biochemistry from the University of Michigan and a Juris Doctor from Lewis & Clark Law School.

This event is free, open to the public, and no registration is required. Grab a friend and join ONDA for a casual, yet informative evening. Check out other events in this series: Ask an Expert, “Where do conservation and creativity meet?“, and Ask an Expert, “How can we save sage grouse?“.
