In this episode JoJo talks with Brent Hefley, bee keeper and wrangler, operator of Plan Bees a Bee relocation company (saying the Bees!) and a fountain of knowledge of native Oregon bees.
They talk honey bees – and how they are dealing with mites, but not really in danger. But the bees that are in danger due to lack of habitat are Oregon’s native bees. Learn how you can create a small but important bee haven where you live.
And the links — so many great links to find yourself in Bee Heaven.
In this episode JoJo talks with Sarah Altemus-Pope, Director of the Southern Willamette Forest Collaborative. They discuss how they are working with communities, businesses, and the Oregon Department of Forestry and The Forest Service to renew and revitalize our public lands.
Sarah went from smoke jumper to director of this diverse group of people to help preserve and sustain our natural resources. They talk about fire, preservation, and the amazing project that is the Rigdon Landscape!
