Yesterday was ‘Sound Loving’ and we had lotsa visitors. Work is work and we are documenting natural growth in an outdoor environment. The Oregon Natural Resources Research Institute is coming back into reality. First founded in 2001 at the Wildlife Safari, by Doc, Bob Craft and the late Jim Long, ONRRI flourished teaching math and science to advanced high school youth on weekend.
The Bug Zone was about developing knowledge of protocols for the ARIMS data base. The idea was to give youth hands-on experience in areas that would assist government scientists in collecting and collating data. The bugs were collected properly and picked out of the dendritus with tweezers and magnifyers. The results translated into a measure of water quality.
The youth involved appreciated the opportunity to get out and the internship looked good on their high school level resume – college scholarships were still worth something at that time. Now – everything is about control.
We need a few good folks to help us develop protocols for operating greenhouses and bio-domes, producing bio-char and other products from fuel load fuel. There are a lot of things on the ground that will burn if in the path of fire that can be used in other weighs. We hope to play this summer, and write this winter. BY next year, the goats will have goatlings, the staff here will have apprentices and we can develop new and novel free energy sources to power our intentions.
Drop a notice of interest through the comments with an e-mail address – i will not post the comment through, but rather will send you an e-mail making comment. Only people who can handle rural farm life need apply – although mebbe we can find some local accommodations for those of us not quite so bold.
Thyme to get onery …
Namaste … Doc
