Thursday, March 30: Lenten Dinner Program: We Affirm Environmental Stewardship

Program: Sustainability in Prisons Project

Speakers Stacy Moore and Jessie Brothers will present a slide show about their work with the Institute for Applied Ecology in Corvallis. They will talk about the “Sustainability in Prisons Project,” where inmates are involved in growing sagebrush to help the greater sage-grouse and raising plants to help feed the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly. The mission of the project is to bring science and nature into prisons where corrections staff and inmates have the chance to foster beauty, diversity and vitality inside the prison fence. This program was recently a part of The Oregon Field Guide on OPB.
