    Downtown Bend: The Magic of Food Dehydration with School of Ranch

    11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | Sunday - Brooks Room * Registration Required

    Get kids to eat their veggies by dehydrating food.

    Registration is required. Materials provided.

    Dehydrating food is magic. Did you know you can turn vegetables into powders? If you mix them into your kid's food, they'll never notice and get almost all the nutritional value! Shazam!

    Join School of Ranch and learn the secrets of dehydrating food, including knowing the equipment needed, preparing different types of foods, avoiding food safety problems, and making magical powders. Bonus - take home a soup-in-a-jar sample!

    Instructor:

    Beth Covert is a food alchemist. Before leaving her artist career and moving here from Ohio six years ago, Beth studied up on desert gardening. On arrival, she became the garden department manager at a local retailer. When her suggestions to stock climate-appropriate plants went nowhere, she started High & Dry Garden Works, her own lab for propagating plants that can thrive with limited water, excessive sun and wind, and deer. Among the many things she grows are her own foodstuffs, which she now by magic makes into amazing new shapes and forms. If you call Beth, prepare for a conversation that goes something like, "Hold on a sec, I just discovered how to make dehydrated french fries and need to write it down!"

    School of Ranch is a Central Oregon based 501c3 nonprofit. They hire experienced locals to teach practical homestead skills, live and in person. Beyond teaching skills and creating paying gigs, they help strengthen our community by providing common ground for people regardless of politics, background, age or beliefs.

    Larkspur Library Book Club

    10:00 AM - 11:00 AM | Wednesday - Larkspur Community Center

    Discuss Shutter by Ramona Emerson.

    Rita Todacheene is a forensic photographer working for the Albuquerque police force. Her excellent photography skills have cracked many cases-she is almost supernaturally good at capturing details. In fact, Rita has been hiding a secret: she sees the ghosts of crime victims who point her toward the clues that other investigators overlook. As a lone portal back to the living for traumatized spirits, Rita is terrorized by nagging ghosts who won't let her sleep and who sabotage her personal life. Her taboo and psychologically harrowing ability was what drove her away from her hometown on the Navajo reservation, where she was raised by her grandmother. It has isolated her from friends and gotten her in trouble with the law. And now it might be what gets her killed. When Rita is sent to photograph the scene of a supposed suicide on a highway overpass, the furious, discombobulated ghost of the victim-who insists she was murdered-latches onto Rita, forcing her on a quest for revenge against her killers, and Rita finds herself in the crosshairs of one of Albuquerque's most dangerous cartels.

    Singer Erin Cole-Baker Performs on Guitar at Thump on York

    3:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Sunday - Thump Coffee on York

    Enjoy timeless songcraft and a gorgeous voice.

    Erin Cole-Baker's timeless, stunning songcraft is guided by her gorgeous voice, reminiscent of greats such as Patty Griffin, early Joni Mitchell and Emmy Lou Harris. Learn more about Erin at her website: https://www.erincolebaker.com/

    Erin Cole-Baker was born in the USA and raised in the beach-filled rural Northland of New Zealand. Cole-Baker was enticed to the American West, and the lure of folk festivals and music scene in the USA in her early 20's. She and her husband found their way to Sisters Folk Festival, and on a whim decided to settle in Bend. Cole-Baker established herself as "one of the more constant and compelling voices on the Central Oregon music scene" (GO! Magazine) and called Oregon home for six years in which she won over the local scene as one half of folk duo The Erins. The Erins parted ways as Cole-Baker returned home to New Zealand to raise a family and Erin Zurflu went on to pursue study in medicine.

    Erin's most recent full-length album Till the Feelings Right was recorded over a few long weekends in 2018 with a band of friends live to tape at Anzac Rd Studios in Whangarei New Zealand - "a hothouse flower of a recording" (NZ Musician Magazine) of "well-crafted songs" (Off the Tracks). Cole-Baker was funded by Outward Sound (NZ) to attend the International Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City, toured through California, Oregon and Washington and was the Breedlove artist for Sisters Folk Festival in 2018.

    In 2019, Erin and her family moved to the USA, bought an RV and toured the Northwest playing music at Festivals, venues and house concerts to connect with a larger community, before settling back in Bend at the start of 2020.

    Over the course of her career, Erin released The Year of Hello and Goodbye(2007) as The Erins, four solo albums (Songs for Roy in 2005, Talon and Spur in 2009, Big Sky in 2011 and Till the Feelings Right in 2018), and more recently three self-produced singles born out of gathering gear and learning to record at home during the pandemic; "Late Summer" in 2021, "I didn't want to take your things" in (2022) and "The Darkest"(2022) which weaves a gorgeous bed of vocal harmony, warm electric guitar and synth to complete her delicate acoustic fingerpicking.

    Erin Cole-Baker and Zurflu are playing again as The Erins, with Cole-Bakers new songs featuring reverby-jazzmaster guitar paired with Erin Zurflu's sister-like harmonies, acoustic guitar, violin and bass making for a close-your-eyes dreamsound. She also plays in Joel Chadd's band.

    Thump Genuine Coffee
    From the very beginning, Thump has been guided by a fundamental desire to create both a better cup of coffee and a better experience for the people who drink it. Learn more about Thump at their website: https://www.thumpcoffee.com/

    Downtown Bend: Resilience and Recovery - The Return of Wolves

    6:00 PM - 7:00 PM | Tuesday - Brooks Room

    Learn more about the charismatic and controversial wolf.

    Wolves are some of the world's most charismatic and controversial animals. Intelligent and adaptable, they hunt and live in close-knit packs, sometimes roaming over hundreds of square miles. Once exterminated throughout most of the contiguous US, wolves have made a comeback in recent decades. This presentation will cover wolf social ecology, behavior, feeding habits, and the conservation and management of wolves.

    Aaron Bott is the regional wolf biologist for Central Oregon, employed by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Additionally, Aaron is a doctoral student at Utah State University studying wolves across the American West - predicting wolf behavioral patterns and testing novel non-lethal predator deterrents. Aaron began working with wolves in Yellowstone National Park as a master's student at USU, eventually serving as the Wolf Project lead of a multi-year field study monitoring wolf spatial persistence and reproduction in the interior of the national park.

    Discuss The Wishing Game by Meg Shaffer.
    Join via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89588941667

    A retired bestselling author hosts a one-of-a-kind competition, with high risks and high rewards-giving the winner a chance to change lives. Lucy Hart has come a long way since feeling the cold neglect of her parents, whose attention always centered around her chronically ill sister's needs. Now a twenty-six-year-old teacher's aide, Lucy is able to share her love of books with bright, young students, and one in particular, a seven-year-old orphan named Christopher, has her yearning for a family of her own. The Clock Island books were Lucy's passion and refuge as a child, and now she shares them with Christopher, who's become as big of a fan as she ever was. No matter how badly Lucy wants him in her life, even the idea of adopting him seems out of reach without proper funds and stability. Then a blue envelope arrives at her school, inviting Lucy to compete for the one and only copy of Jack Masterson's final novel in the iconic Clock Island series. No one has seen or heard from Jack Masterson in years, but now four diehard Clock Island fans have received the invitation of a lifetime to stay on his private island and compete for the final installment, and un-published manuscript, of the well-loved series. For Lucy, a chance to read the last-ever Clock Island book is a prize worth playing for, but the possibility of winning and securing a better future for her and Christopher means everything. *zm*

    The Original Alpaca Picnic Experience

    11:30 AM - 1:30 PM | Tuesday - other organization * Registration Required

    Come experience a picnic in an alpaca pasture and learn about these adorable animals.

    Registration is required.

    That's right! A picnic with alpacas! - An experience with a group of floofs guaranteed to put smiles on the faces of those in the foulest of moods!

    You’ll get to sit and drink and eat and be merry while surrounded by a pack of friendly alpacas. We’ll even leave you with a bucket of alpaca food. Some will come up as curious about you as you are about them. Some won’t even acknowledge your existence. But the one thing that is guaranteed is that ALL of them will put smiles on your face that you may never be able to wipe.

    The Original Alpaca Experience was founded by Wasim Muklashy & Amanda VandenBosch. Wasim, a professional travel & fine art photographer and Bend real estate photographer, found himself willingly thrust into the alpaca world for the past few years, shooting for various farms and alpaca programs. In 2019, while shooting in Peru for Quechua Benefit, a non-profit supporting economic benefits for underserved communities in the Peruvian highlands, he met Amanda VandenBosch, one of the world’s premiere alpaca breeders and international alpaca judges. That encounter blossomed into a friendship which led to him living and working at Flying Dutchman Alpacas, Amanda’s family alpaca farm in Bend, Oregon, during part of the pandemic year.

    Taking his morning coffee and lunch in the alpaca paddocks during those magical months was pure therapy for Wasim, which is something Amanda understood very well. They both quickly realized that if these buggers were therapeutic to them, they’d be therapeutic to others as well. So, they figured why not share them with to the world, especially after a year where most of us can certainly use it! *br*

    The Basics of Fire Ecology at SHARC

    4:00 PM - 5:00 PM | Wednesday - SHARC - Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center

    Learn about the role of fire in our ecosystem and management methods.

    Registration recommended. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/basics-of-fire-ecology-tickets-907697015207

    Did you know that the pine forests of Central Oregon depend on fire to be healthy and resilient? In this presentation, join Discover Your Forest and the Deschutes National Forest in examining the role of fire in this ecosystem, what influences spread and intensity, and how forest management methods, including prescribed burning, can be used to maintain ecosystem health.

    Emily Curtis is the Wildland Fire Education Coordinator for Discover Your Forest, working closely with the Deschutes National Forest and other local, county, state, and federal agencies to coordinate public outreach and education programs on fire science associated with forest restoration and wildland fire risk reduction. Before joining Discover Your Forest, Emily worked for the Forest Service on the Siuslaw, Mt. Hood, and Deschutes National Forests. In addition to her fascination with fire on the landscape, Emily is keenly interested in the relationship between natural processes and social systems.

    Jaimie Olle started her career with the U.S. Forest Service a decade ago as a wildland firefighter in the Umpqua National Forest. After a couple of seasons, she moved to the Deschutes National Forest where she has worked in various roles including recreation, visitor services and special uses and for the past three years as a public affairs specialist. One of the best parts of her job is supporting prescribed burning communications and implementation across the forest. When she’s not working you can find her exploring our fire-dependent ecosystem with her husband and dog, curled up with a good book or sliding down volcanoes on her snowboard.

    Discover Your Forest is a local non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the discovery of the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests and Crooked River National Grassland by enriching the experience of visitors, building community support, and creating the next generation of environmental stewards. Learn more at https://discoveryourforest.org/

    In Collaboration with Sunriver You
    Sunriver You is a volunteer organization created to provide learning opportunities for those in the greater Sunriver community. Our mission is to create the opportunity to match up the “people who know stuff” with the “people who want to learn stuff”.

    Sisters: Know Migration - Early Transportation in Central Oregon

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM | Thursday - Community Room

    A visual presentation of Central Oregon’s transition from livestock trails to automobiles.

    This presentation is an illustrated program on the development of early transportation of Central Oregon. The region was mostly isolated as only a few wagon roads entered into the interior of Oregon until the 1880s. Most roads were relatively primitive and travel was adventuresome. First were freight and stage lines that challenged freighters and stage passengers over rough and sometimes harsh circumstances in inclement weather. Often Central Oregon would become isolated when weather made any travel nearly impossible.

    One of the largest stage lines in the United States was established by George “Mac” Cornett that had links with most of the communities in the region. Freighters were the life blood of developing communities bringing important supplies needed by pioneer residents.

    Early automobile travel did not come to the region until 1905 and often roads made travel very difficult. Gradually the automobile began to replace the horse and wagons and road systems began to improve but it was still a high adventure to travel the isolated back roads of the region.

    Through use of old photographs, the audience will be able to see how early travelers braved the pioneer roads and methods of transportation. Over 100 vintage photos help reveal the hardships of early travel in the region.Presenter Biography:
    Steve grew up and attended schools in Crook County, Oregon. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science degree in history and education in 1972. His early career was in fire management with the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

    Through the years Steve served as president of the Crook County Historical Society on two separate occasions and has been involved with local history. His interest in how local places received their names became a passion of pursuit and he spent over ten years researching three volumes on Central Oregon Place Names, with the first volume on Crook County published in 2001 and volume two on Jefferson in 2008 and the final volume on Deschutes County in 2015.

    Steve also has re-photographed historical photos of Central Oregon from private collections, museums, and other sources accumulating over 5000 historical photos. Additionally, he presents historical programs to local schools and organizations, develops, coordinates and writes tour guide books for local historical tours and writes a weekly article for the Central Oregonian and Madras Pioneer newspapers on Central Oregon Historical Highlights. In 2001 Steve received national recognition from the National Association for State and Local History for his efforts in promoting local history. In 2015 he was honored by the Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) with a medal for National Historical Preservation. He also is a member of the Western Writers of America.

    After retirement from the Bureau of Land Management Steve became the Assistant Director of the Bowman Museum in Prineville in 2002 and served as Bowman Museum Historian for 20 years. He retired from the museum in April 2022. Current completed projects include publications of the photographic history of Prineville, Madras and Crook County. He has also compiled historical articles he writes for local newspapers into three book volumes, Islands in Time, Pillars in Time, and Monuments in Time. He is the editor of the Crook County Historical Society newsletter and of the annual history journal Crook County Chronicles. Although retired he continues to volunteer as historian on a regular basis at the Bowman Museum. He has a new book that was recently been published titled Prineville Past and Present and is a photo history of early sites in Prineville and contemporary photos showing what is there now. *br*

    Downtown Bend: Civic Assembly on Youth Homelessness in Deschutes County

    6:00 PM - 7:00 PM | Thursday - Brooks Room

    Join the discussion and be a part of the solution.

    The Central Oregon Civic Action Project, in collaboration with Deschutes County, the City of Bend, and other local governments, is conducting a civic assembly to help decide what our priorities should be for building community solutions to prevent and end youth homelessness.

    A Civic Assembly is a democratic process that brings together a group of everyday people through a democratic lottery to research, discuss, and make recommendations about an important public issue. Assemblies are designed to respect each individual’s perspective while also helping to identify widely supported solutions - to get the best of both worlds. Outside research backs this up, showing that Civic Assemblies are able to be innovative and productive, even in divisive and complicated political situations. Partners in the Central Oregon Civic Action Project, or COCAP, are Oregon State University-Cascades and the nonprofits Healthy Democracy and DemocracyNext.

    Discuss The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson.Catering to the stories folks actually want to read and making fun of the stuffy "classics", Maggie falls in love with books and realizes the power stories have to build community. But with a historical society itching to catch her and shut her down for good, and a budding relationship with an adorably strait-laced inspector weighing on her conscience, everything starts to fall apart. And just as Maggie feels herself becoming a part of the community, she unearths a town secret that could ruin everything. She'll have to figure out what's more important: the books that formed a small town's history, or the stories poised to change it all.

    Downtown Bend: Know Migration - Early Transportation in Central Oregon

    6:00 PM - 7:00 PM | Monday - Brooks Room

    A visual presentation of Central Oregon’s transition from livestock trails to automobiles.

    This presentation is an illustrated program on the development of early transportation of Central Oregon. The region was mostly isolated as only a few wagon roads entered into the interior of Oregon until the 1880s. Most roads were relatively primitive and travel was adventuresome. First were freight and stage lines that challenged freighters and stage passengers over rough and sometimes harsh circumstances in inclement weather. Often Central Oregon would become isolated when weather made any travel nearly impossible.

    One of the largest stage lines in the United States was established by George “Mac” Cornett that had links with most of the communities in the region. Freighters were the life blood of developing communities bringing important supplies needed by pioneer residents.

    Early automobile travel did not come to the region until 1905 and often roads made travel very difficult. Gradually the automobile began to replace the horse and wagons and road systems began to improve but it was still a high adventure to travel the isolated back roads of the region.

    Through use of old photographs, the audience will be able to see how early travelers braved the pioneer roads and methods of transportation. Over 100 vintage photos help reveal the hardships of early travel in the region.Presenter Biography:
    Steve grew up and attended schools in Crook County, Oregon. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science degree in history and education in 1972. His early career was in fire management with the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

    Through the years Steve served as president of the Crook County Historical Society on two separate occasions and has been involved with local history. His interest in how local places received their names became a passion of pursuit and he spent over ten years researching three volumes on Central Oregon Place Names, with the first volume on Crook County published in 2001 and volume two on Jefferson in 2008 and the final volume on Deschutes County in 2015.

    Steve also has re-photographed historical photos of Central Oregon from private collections, museums, and other sources accumulating over 5000 historical photos. Additionally, he presents historical programs to local schools and organizations, develops, coordinates and writes tour guide books for local historical tours and writes a weekly article for the Central Oregonian and Madras Pioneer newspapers on Central Oregon Historical Highlights. In 2001 Steve received national recognition from the National Association for State and Local History for his efforts in promoting local history. In 2015 he was honored by the Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) with a medal for National Historical Preservation. He also is a member of the Western Writers of America.

    After retirement from the Bureau of Land Management Steve became the Assistant Director of the Bowman Museum in Prineville in 2002 and served as Bowman Museum Historian for 20 years. He retired from the museum in April 2022. Current completed projects include publications of the photographic history of Prineville, Madras and Crook County. He has also compiled historical articles he writes for local newspapers into three book volumes, Islands in Time, Pillars in Time, and Monuments in Time. He is the editor of the Crook County Historical Society newsletter and of the annual history journal Crook County Chronicles. Although retired he continues to volunteer as historian on a regular basis at the Bowman Museum. He has a new book that was recently been published titled Prineville Past and Present and is a photo history of early sites in Prineville and contemporary photos showing what is there now. *br*
