Cascadia Rising Bioregional Confluence follow-up and regional reports, hosted by Paul Roland

Air date: 
Wed, 04/23/2014 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Reflections on the event that happened Sunday in Portland, and call-ins from around the region

An enthusiastic and well-attended "Bioregional Confluence" in Portland this past Sunday brought together people from around Cascadia to meet and attend panels on a wide range of subjects. At lunch, the assembly brought back to life, after many years without a Bioregional gathering in this region, the tradition of regional or "watershed" reportbacks. Some of those attending will call in with the issues they are working on in their areas. Listeners who attended or who have issues of their own they are working on are encouraged to call in at 503-231-8032. We hope to make this at least a semi-regular feature of KBOO Public Affairs programming.
