For those who missed the September 2013 grassland learning experience or needed an opportunity to reinforce the concepts from the event, OHA was thrilled to announce the return of one of the region’s premier grass experts, Don Gayton. Last September, Don’s Highland Wonders presentation and field trip were filled to capacity, and OHA received requests to offer an indoor presentation to a larger group. The March event was a great opportunity for those who were not able to participate in the previous grassland learning experience, as well as a chance for those who attended to reinforce the concepts that had been presented, and develop a deeper understanding.
Don Gayton, M.Sc., P.Ag., has extensive experience with our region’s grasslands and has published a number of technical articles about them. He is passionate about sharing his knowledge of our precious and endangered grasslands. Don is an award winning author. His books include The Wheatgrass Mechanism, Landscapes of the Interior, Interwoven Wild, and Okanogan Odyssey. Stuart McLean describes him as having “the eye of a scientist and the soul of a poet.”
Thank you, Don Gayton, for providing this valuable learning experience!
