Long delayed updates – butterflies

rich/ November 29, 2011/ Farm/

It’s been a pretty eventful summer, so much so that actual blog updates were the ones who suffered from neglect the most.

So in the interest of catching up, for starters, our endangered butterfly habitat were recently showcased on the Farm Service Agency’s blog. And, as Val mentioned, we were recently awarded Yamhill Conservation Landowner of the Year for our stewardship of them, as well as our gully plug project (more on developments there soon, I promise). I gave a talk at the annual award dinner, which seems to have gone well. If you’re interested, a pdf of my presentation is here (5Mb).
