Description

This season's first Lens on Learning event features Dr. Lisa Machnik to lead us on a journey of discovering Wild and Scenic Rivers. Dr. Machnik's presentation will cover:

  • The historical context for the establishment of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (WSRA)
  • Fundamentals of the WSRA
  • How are rivers managed?
  • The Wild and Scenic Rivers of Central Oregon - how lucky we are to have these resources in our backyard!

An avid backpacker, canoeist, trail runner and skier, Lisa worked as a backcountry guide in Canada and New Zealand before completing her PhD at Clemson University, where she also worked with the National Park Service in their Interpretive Development Program. She joined the Forest Service as a Presidential Management Fellow in 2007. After working on the Sawtooth and Salmon-Challis National Forests, and in the Intermountain Regional Office, Lisa spent 5 years as the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Wilderness, Wild and Scenic Rivers, and Congressionally Designated Areas Program Manager. Lisa has worked on ecotourism development projects around the world, including Dominica, Brazil, across West Africa, and Madagascar. She considers herself incredibly lucky to work and live in Central Oregon with people who share a passion for trails, wilderness, rivers, and outdoor adventures.

This event is sponsored by Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (FANs), a group founded in 2011 by landowners surrounding the Deschutes Canyon-Steelhead Falls Wilderness Study Area in Central Oregon who came together over their shared love of nearby public lands. The focus area of FANs includes many special places such as Steelhead Falls, Alder Springs, the Peninsula, Otter Bench and Scout Camp. FANs membership forms will be available at this presentation. You can also become a member by visiting our website at www.fansofdeschutes.org. We look forward to seeing you at this event!
