    Evening Talks at ONRC @ Olympic Natural Resources Center
    Thursday: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

    The Olympic Natural Resources Center welcomes you to its next Evening Talks at ONRC program.

     

    TOPIC                    Orcas, Humans and Salmon: Shared Destinies in the Pacific Northwest

    DATE/TIME         Thursday, December 12, 2013 – 6:30 to 8:00 PM

    PRESENTER         Rich Osborne, Ph. D. – ONRC Research Consultant and Neutral Forum Facilitator

    BRING                   Your favorite snack food to share

    LOCATION           ONRC, 1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks

     

    Rich Osborne will present an illustrated lecture on the interdependence of salmon, orcas and people of the Pacific Northwest from prehistoric times into the present. Drawing on over three decades of orca research while affiliated with The Whale Museum and the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs, Dr. Osborne will highlight the challenges salmon-feeding orcas are facing in the delicate balance for access to the limited salmon resources it shares with people. Key questions addressed in the talk are whether the scarcity of the orcas favorite prey, Chinook salmon, is already influencing the decline of this endangered population, and whether the orcas will shift their preference to other prey if salmon stocks decline further.

     

    Everyone is welcome. Topic is appropriate for learners of all ages. Please feel free to forward this invitation to others who might be interested in this topic.

    An Introduction to Modern Weather Prediction: Is it going to rain or maybe snow?

    Olympic Natural Resources Center

    1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks

    Presenter: Tom Rosmond

    Bring: Favorite snack to share with others

    We all want to know the answer to that question, especially this time of the year. Tom Rosmond will discuss how modern weather prediction tries to answer it and show some of the science and technology used to support those weather predictions.  Rosmond will also discuss the accuracy of today’s weather predictions and suggest ways it could be enhanced and improved.

    Rosmond is a consultant for the Naval Research Laboratory, the Marine Meteorology Division. He previously worked at the Naval Research Laboratory and at University of California, Fresno. Rosmond attend the University of Washington, graduating with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Oceanography and doctoral degree Atmospheric Sciences.

    Rosmond grew up in Forks and graduated from Forks High School. During school breaks, he worked in his family-owned business, Rosmond Brothers Lumber Company, a prolific lumber mill for 38 years that operated on the current site of the 101 Business Park.

    Title: Living in Twilight – How Plants Survive in the Darkest Forest

    Friday, February 7, 2014 – 6:30 PM

    Olympic Natural Resources Center

    1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks

    Presenter: Shawn Behling

    Shawn Behling will describe her current research into the role of light and plant development. Behling is currently investigating community dynamics and physiological responses to light in two conifer species and Arabidopsis, a small model plant. This data will be used to improve crop yields and forest product quality in Washington State forests.

    Behling is fascinated by all forest communities and has conducted research in the Catskills, the Adirondacks, Shenandoahs, Cascades and Olympics in association with USGS, USDA, USFS and the Smithsonian Institution. Her work with peanut farmers in Mozambique through USAID allowed her to use her ecophysiology background to investigate how both crops and forests can be improved through light dynamic research, regardless of their location.

    Behling is a doctoral student in the Canopy Dynamics Lab at the University of Washington School of Environmental and Forest Sciences.

    Evening Talks at ONRC is funded the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community. 

    Everyone is welcome. Topic is appropriate for learners of all ages.

    Special Note: The presentation from the Modern Weather Prediction talk by Tom Rosmond on January 17, 2014, are available on the ONRC website.

    "There Is Always Hope" Free Workshop

    There Is Always Hope!

    Free Workshop, Tuesday, March 4, 2014, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, Forks Community Hospital, Ambulance Conference Room, 530 Bogachiel Way, Forks.

    We’ve all experienced a sense of hopelessness.

    Gaining weight. Managing physical pain. Living with cancer. A relationship on the rocks.

    Your mind can make heaven out of hell and hell out of heaven. You lose sight of all the good in life and wrap yourself up in fear and anxiety.

    But there is hope.

    Certified Counselor and Medical Hypnotherapist Roger Moore will show you how to use a simple technique called mindfulness to soothe your fears and open the doors of hopefulness and peacefulness once again.

    Roger Moore has been assisting Forks residents with their health and wellness goals since 2008. Hypnotherapy is medically-approved for reducing weight, stopping smoking, reducing the side effects of cancer treatments, minimizing chronic pain, and decreasing feelings of depression, stress and anxiety.

    Chasing the Iceworm in Tibet

    Friday, March 14, 2014 – 6:30 PM

    Olympic Natural Resources Center

    1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks

    Presenter: Mike Tetreau

    Mike Tetreau has a bachelor’s degree in Wildlife and Wildland Recreation Management from Washington State University and worked as a natural resource manager for Kenai Fjords National Park in south central Alaska from 1987 to 2006. He now resides in Forks and works part-time as a biological technician for the Olympic National Park.

    Tetreau became fascinated with ice worms after his first encounter with them in the early 1990′s around Seward, Alaska. As luck would have it, he soon crossed paths with Dr. Dan Shain from Rutgers University who was also interested in ice worms. Since then, Tetreau and Shain have searched for the ice worm throughout the Pacific Northwest and, most recently, in the Himalaya Mountains of eastern Tibet.

    The ice worm, Mesenchytraeus solifugus, is a small annelid that lives only on warm, temperate glaciers or permanent snowfields along the Pacific Northwest coast. They are the largest metazoans known to complete their life cycle exclusively in glacier ice. How they are able to live their entire life at or below the freezing point is just one of their unique attributes. Their biology, genetic history and somewhat mythical status make them an intriguing subject for study and discussion.

    Evening Talks at ONRC is funded the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.

    Everyone is welcome. Topic is appropriate for learners of all ages.
