The Legacy and Promise of Land Grant Universities and Oregon State Extension in the Gorge
Sense of Place Lecture Series (free online event via Zoom)
After more than a century in existence, what have we learned from local Extension Services? When Ann Harris interviewed for her position at OSU Extension, she had no idea what a “land grant” university was. She also didn’t know how the Extension service connected to the university, but that’s no longer the case. From the complex history that established land-grant universities to the present day programs that provide research-based support for our economy, what impact have Extension services had on local communities like the Gorge and how have they affected our region as a whole? Join Ann Harris from OSU Extension, as she shares pictures and stories of the local Gorge Extension. From Master Gardener classes to 4-H and food preservation.
Ann Harris is the Open Campus Education Coordinator for OSU Extension in the Gorge. She grew up in Southern California and moved with her family here 23 years ago. “My husband Mike and I came to the Gorge because we were looking for a home where we could envision raising our kids with a true sense of place and belonging in nature and in the community”. Ann has worked in social services and in education and is an active community and church volunteer.
This year we are offering free admission to Sense of Place lecture events. However, producing the events is not free. We know it is a challenging time for everyone, but if you are able, please consider making a donation to support the production of this program. We are suggesting $10+ donation for each lecture you attend. We greatly appreciate your support! mtadamsinstitute.org/donate-sense-of-place
