    Listen to original indie-soul/folk tunes by Portland-based singer-songwriter Karyn Ann Patridge.

    Karyn Ann will play all original tunes released or written during the past year of the pandemic that canceled all her, and most musicians', tour plans for 2020. However, with the time off, she was given the mental space to write at least an album's worth, if not more, of new material and explore some new sounds and writing styles.

    Portland-based singer-songwriter Karyn Ann has been charming audiences with her powerful vocals and emotive lyricism for nearly a decade. A geologist-turned-musician, she is a hidden gem within the indie-soul/folk scene garnering comparisons to Brandi Carlile, Carole King and Bonnie Raitt. She tours nationally having had notable performances at the 2017 Women’s Redrock Music Festival and the legendary Bitter End in NYC. Most recently she was a finalist in the 2020 Grassy Hill Emerging Artist showcase and runner-up in the Red Lodge Songwriters Contest. For more information, visit her website at: www.karynann.com

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    A recording of this program will be available to watch on-demand beginning Feb 11th.

    Learn about the watershed council and their restoration work along Whychus Creek.

    Staff from the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council will give a presentation about the work done by a watershed council and the types of programs and services they provide to Central Oregon. Presenters will give a brief overview of their restoration, monitoring and education programs and also share some of the highlights and stories about specific projects completed in recent years along Whychus Creek that flows through the community of Sisters, Oregon.

    Since 1996, the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council (UDWC) has worked to protect and restore the 2,000,000-acre upper Deschutes River watershed through collaborative projects in watershed restoration, monitoring and education. With local support from landowners, ranchers, environmental interests, local citizens, and representatives from local governments and agencies, we lead collaborative projects to improve watershed conditions.

    Kris Knight, Executive Director: Kris has spent 20 years working in the field of natural resources on issues related to rivers and watersheds. Kris started working for UDWC in 2019 and before that worked in Washington, Iowa and Kansas. For 11 years, Kris worked for The Nature Conservancy with seven years living in the Skagit River Valley in Washington State, managing collaborative projects and finding common ground between conservation and agricultural interests in the Puget Sound region. Between 2015 and 2019, Kris worked in his home state of Kansas as the Conservation Director for The Nature Conservancy where he launched a new conservation program called Healthy Streams for Kansas and led the creation of the Little Jerusalem Badlands State Park. Kris holds a B.S. degree from Drake University and a M.S. degree in Environmental Science from Iowa State University. Kris met his wife Wendy while previously living in Central Oregon over 20 years ago and they are excited to be back in Central Oregon with their three young boys.

    Mathias Perle, Restoration Program Manager: Mathias Perle is the Habitat Restoration Program Manager at the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council in Bend, OR where he, for the last 12 years, has been working on habitat restoration, fish passage and screening projects with basin partners both on public and private land. Mathias has a diverse project management background in environmental and water resource consulting and has spent the last 12 years concentrating on forming strong ties with Deschutes Basin stakeholders. On Whychus Creek, which is the focus of watershed scale restoration efforts to support salmon and steelhead reintroduction in Central Oregon, Mathias has worked on multiple dam removals and fish passage projects and on 6 miles of habitat restoration projects. Mathias holds a M.S. in Hydrologic Sciences and a M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering both from the University of California, Davis and a B.S. in Geology from the University of Delaware.

    Discuss We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

    To join, click the link above, use this link https://zoom.us/j/92544980243, or call +1-669-900-6833 with Meeting ID 925 4498 0243.

    Author! Author! Ta-Nehisi Coates is a distinguished writer in residence at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. He is the author of the bestselling books The Beautiful Struggle, We Were Eight Years in Power, and Between the World and Me, which won the National Book Award in 2015. Coates is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. He is also the current author of the Marvel comics The Black Panther and Captain America. Mitchell S. Jackson is the winner of a Whiting Award. His award-winning debut novel The Residue Years was followed by his nonfiction book Survival Math: Notes on an All-American Family.
    Ta-Nehisi Coates, in conversation with Mitchell S. Jackson: February 7 at 4:00 p.m.

    "We Were Eight Years in Power was the lament of Reconstruction-era black politicians as the American experiment in multiracial democracy ended with the return of white supremacist rule in the South. In this sweeping collection of new and selected essays, Ta-Nehisi Coates explores the tragic echoes of that history in our own time: the unprecedented election of a black president followed by a vicious backlash that fueled the election of the man Coates argues is America’s 'first white president.'
    But the story of these present-day eight years is not just about presidential politics. This book also examines the new voices, ideas, and movements for justice that emerged over this period—and the effects of the persistent, haunting shadow of our nation’s old and unreconciled history. Coates powerfully examines the events of the Obama era from his intimate and revealing perspective—the point of view of a young writer who begins the journey in an unemployment office in Harlem and ends it in the Oval Office, interviewing a president."
