Festival Time - Bug Howdt

For the next ten days, Doctor Lenny's Traveling Circus will relocate to beautiful downtown Reedsport and the Umpqua Discovery Center for the Tsalila Festival.

The Oregon Natural Resources Research Institute will be partnering with the Umpqua Soil and Water Conservation District to provide a Bug Excursion - introducing understream life during the elementary school education fest Wednesday through Friday. In addition, our US Forest Service Blister Rust Monitors will use a poster session to inform the public of their discoveries during the public weekend. Salmon Cookout. Invest in indulging yourself on the coast. Last year we watched wooden bears being carved by chainsaw.
We found this guy in the North Umpqua for the first time in 2002 - photo credit to Jeff Adams - kudos for the kids that have gotten involved with me these past five years. This will be doctor Lenny's last official capacity as an ONRRI scientist - as of October 1 - we are Howdt on our own.
