September 16, Conservation of the Orange-breasted Falcon presentation

Conservation of the Orange-breasted Falcon- Adventures in Central America Species Restoration

with Jay Tuttle

Herm’s Inn, Downstairs
1435 Canyon Rd., Logan
Saturday, September 16, 2017
Noon – 1 p.m.
(lunch available for purchase)
The Orange-breasted Falcon is a medium sized raptor which once ranged from Mexico to Argentina. Thought by some to occupy the ecological role of the iconic Peregrine in the neotropics, its range has been significantly reduced. The Peregrine Fund has been working to conserve the species since 1991 through monitoring of local populations and captive breeding.
Jay Tuttle is a student at Utah State University working towards his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. He earned his undergraduate at the University of Vermont in Wildlife Biology. Jay has been fortunate to have gained experience working on raptors with the Sutton Avian Research Center in Oklahoma, the Peregrine Fund in Belize, and the Wildlife Conservation Society in Mongolia. He will speak and share photographs of the work that the Peregrine Fund performs as part of its Orange-breasted Falcon conservation program in Belize.
The presentation will cover the species natural history, declines, captive propagation and release. As well as the tireless efforts local biologists, supported by the Peregrine Fund, are putting towards preserving the species.

May 11, Secrets of the Soil – Revealed

Cache Soil to Table
Cache Soil to Table
Thursday, May 11, 2017
Logan Library
Jim Bridger Room
6:30 – 8 p.m.

Wise gardeners and farmers proclaim they don’t “grow plants,” they grow soil! While “dirt” is just a medium to anchor plant roots, SOIL is a living ecosystem teaming with bacteria, fungi, worms, archea, nematodes, and
arthropods. Whether you’re growing kale, tomatoes, peaches or pistachios—or just getting started with a bare patch of dirt and a bunch of garden dreams—Cache Soil to Table (CS2T) intern Joe Montoya and Jeanne Wallace will teach
key concepts that will help you understand your soil and the best management strategies to:

  • prevent mineral deficiencies in your plants
  • maximize plant health and vigor
  • reduce weeds
  • naturally inhibit pests and plant diseases
  • improve the flavor and nutrient-density of your crops

Should you till the soil? Well, that depends… What’s the best way to make
compost? Well, that depends…. What’s a better mulch: straw or wood chips?
Should you use cover crops? Well, that depends…

Equipped with an understanding of the Soil-Food Web, you’ll be empowered to create innovative, individualized (and low-cost) solutions to these and other questions.
