Invitation to listening session for SolvePestProblems.org

September 28, 2017 at Oregon Zoo

Dear Valued Stakeholders,

Have you ever had difficulty identifying and finding a solution to your own or your clients’ landscape and pest problems?  Wondering where to find reliable information about pesticides and alternative management strategies?

Good news!

Oregon State University, at the urging of stakeholders from across the state, has initiated a plan to fill this gap in essential public information delivery. For details about the plan, see SolvePestProblems.org: The Oregon Integrated Pest Management Information Service.

We are asking for YOUR feedback to help shape this important, state-wide educational service.

Join us for a listening session and lunch!

We are conducting a listening session on September 28, 2017 from 10:00am – 3:00pm at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, Oregon. 

If you are interested in participating, please complete this registration form.

Here’s an opportunity for you, our stakeholders, to provide input about key elements of the project, including pesticide communications, alternative pest control strategies, pollinator health, and overall content and usability of the online service.

We are limited to 75 participants based on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Lunch is included at no cost to you, though we are happy to accept donations of $20 to help cover this expense.

We are also planning an additional listening session in Deschutes County and two Spanish-language listening sessions this fall.  Details will be coming soon—please connect with us if you are interested to learn more about these additional events.

Thank you to our sponsors
This listening session is made possible through the generous support of our community partners, including Metro, East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, West Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, City of Gresham, OSU Pollinator Health, and OSU College of Agricultural Sciences.
