The Vesper Meadow Education Program is embarking on a journey of rewilding, and you are invited! The primary outpost is a rare upland wet meadow in the Cascade-Siskiyou region, where the headwaters of both the Klamath and the Rogue Rivers spring forth on the Dead Indian Plateau. It is home to rare species like the Mardon Skipper and Oregon Vesper Sparrow, as well as charismatic creatures like Great Grey Owls, River Otter, and herds of elk. Vesper Meadow is steeped in rich cultural history of the Latgawa people, and those even more ancient.
Join Program Director Jeanine Moy as she discusses the launch of a community-powered ecological rewilding of this upland wet meadow near Howard Prairie Reservoir. 2019 will be the launch for exciting education programs and everyone is invited to participate in stewardship efforts, biological monitoring, and inspired art programs. Come learn how you can join in the experience of restoration and monitoring efforts to protect imperiled species, native plants, and biodiversity.
