OREGON CITY - The use of technological tools, such as auto-samplers, low-cost drones and geographic information systems (GIS) can provide effective and efficient natural resource management. However, navigating the options to choose the tools appropriate for a given objective, can be challenging. The Clackamas Community College Environmental Learning Center is offering a workshop to provide a basic understanding of the technological tools available for monitoring, assessing and planning activities related to natural resource management. 

The workshop will be Friday, Oct. 7, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is offered both in-person and online via Zoom. Specific applications will be presented by industry professionals who use this technology on a regular basis. Instructors include a project surveyor, a biologist and landscape ecologists. Participants will walk away with an understanding of which technologies would be most appropriate for their particular management objectives.

The course is open to the public and is $230. There area limited number of scholarship dollars available that reduce the cost of registration by 30% for those eligible.

About the Environmental Learning Center

The Environmental Learning Center has a rich history as an educational resource for Clackamas Community College, regional schools, industry and the community. Located on the former site of a Smucker's processing plant, the center was created to demonstrate what people could do to reclaim industrial sites, address stormwater issues and restore wildlife habitats in urban areas. Each year thousands of people visit to explore the 5-acre site and learn about watershed health. The site serves as an important stormwater facility for the college campus and provides critical wetland habitat for resident and migratory birds, such as the great blue heron, wood duck and merganser.
