 +At our general meeting on Tuesday, March 10, we will hear a presentation from Dr. Bruce Roll, speaking on the Tualatin River Watershed Restoration.
 +
 +**Speaker: __Dr. Bruce Roll, PH.D__.**
 +
 +  * Unordered List ItemBruce is the **Director of Natural Systems for Clean Water Services (CWS) and the nonprofit Clean Water Institute (CWI) in Hillsboro**,​ Oregon.  ​
 +  * Since 2007, Bruce and Tree for All partners manage one of the Nation’s largest landscape conservation programs that is catalyzed by riparian and river flow restoration in the rural and urban communities of the Tualatin Watershed (www.jointreeforall.org). ​
 +  * During his tenure at CWS,  more than **140 river miles have been restored across more than 30,000 acres in the Tualatin Watershed**.  ​
 +  * Bruce attended Colorado State University where he received a BS in Environmental Microbiology. ​ In addition, Bruce received a MS and PhD from the Water Resources Research Center at the University of Hawaii and a MPH in management from the School of Public Health. ​

 +**Presentation: ​ __Tualatin River Watershed Restoration__**
 +
 +Throughout the United States, communities struggle to address the challenges of climate change, rapid urban growth, and the scale of action needed to create healthy and resilient watersheds. We have come a long way identifying the actions needed to address these challenges but are only beginning to understand how to move from pilot projects to programmatic scale. ​
 +
 +In 2004, Clean Water Services, a public water resources utility in northwestern Oregon, initiated the development of a riparian restoration program to meet regulatory requirements under the Clean Water Act (CWA). ​ As this program evolved it grew into an effective landscape conservations programs called Tree for All (TFA). ​ Working across both urban and rural communities this program is able to access the social and financial capital needed to work at the landscape scale. To date, this program has restored more than a 140 river miles across more than 30,000 acres in the agricultural and urban communities of the Tualatin River Watershed. Moving from pilot projects to a landscape scale conservation program restoring more than 10 river miles annually was a 15 year journey for Clean Water Services and partners of the Tualatin River Watershed.
 +
 +Shifting from the planting of a few thousands native plants to more than a million annually across broad riparian and upland landscapes was enabled by the development of new restoration technology, ​ transformational partnerships and innovative long term funding strategies.

 +At our general meeting on Tuesday, February 18, we will hear a presentation from Dr. Burke Hales, speaking on Ocean Acidification. ​ (Please note that this meeting will be held on the third Tuesday of the month instead of our regular meeting date on the second Tuesday.)
 +
 +This meeting on February 18 will be __hosted at the Oregon TECH Campus in Wilsonville ​ and skyped to the Glumac offices on the 16th floor (via Skype). You can attend at the Glumac location as usual__.
 +
 +**Speaker: Dr. Burke Hales**
 +
 +Dr. Hales is a professor of ocean ecology and biogeochemistry at Oregon State University, and the inventor of the “Burke-o-Lator” a system that has revolutionized shore-based Ocean Acidification (OA) monitoring. ​ Burke has been studying ocean carbon cycling, from the perspective of carbonate chemistry, since he started grad school in 1988.  ​
 +
 +**Presentation: ​ Ocean Acidification** (a topic much in the news these weeks).
 +
 +Oceans are taking up somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of the CO2 emitted by man every year. As a result, the ocean is becoming more acidic. ​ Ocean acidification is a threat to fisheries and aquaculture,​ to coral reefs, to the production of oxygen and to the entire food chain.
 +
 +Dr. Hales will present a summary of his 31 years  of study on oceans and the  exchange of CO2 between the ocean and atmosphere.
 +
 +No need to RSVP—just show up!
 +
 +**When**: ​ February 18, 12:00 to 1:00 PM
 +
 +**Where**: (1) Oregon TECK Campus in Wilsonville,​ Room 201 and (2) Glumac, 900 SW Fifth Ave, Suite 1600, Spruce Conference Room, Portland Oregon 97204 (via  Skype).
