Natural Resources Day at the Capitol a Valuable Tool
By Oregon Wheat Grower’s League

Oregon farm and ranch families celebrated “Growing Oregon” during Natural Resource Day, at a rally on the Capitol steps Tuesday, April 19th. The event also included interactive exhibits hosted by Oregon agricultural commodities and organizations; a beef steak lunch; and industry seminars held in the Capitol meeting rooms. The event closed with a wine and cheese reception in the park.

Jerry Marguth, South Willamette Festival/AgFest Valley president and Tom Duyck, North Willamette Valley President and OWC Chair represented the League and Commission for the day. Jerry accompanied OWGL Advocate Jana Jarvis to visit with the Ways & Means Education subcommittee to discuss OSU Statewides funding, and with House leadership on HB3058, the coop bill. Tom Duyck traveled back to the Portland area later in the day to testify on behalf of OSU statewide funding.
