There will be no oom-pah music, no beer and no lederhosen. At least we hope. Nonetheless, there will be much to celebrate every Thursday in October as the North Willamette Research and Extension Center observes OktoberPest. Every Thursday in October, from 9 a.m.-noon, there will be a workshop at NWREC, 15210 N.E. Miley Road, Aurora, Ore. Seminars include “Outwitting Phytophthora: Phytophthora Management in the Nursery Systems,” Oct. 2; “Down Stream: Pesticides and Water Qualilty,” Oct. 9; “Beyond Ladybeetles: An Introduction to Biological Control,” Oct. 16; “Unwanted Guests: Invasive Species and the Nursery Industry,” Oct. 23; and “Playing it Safe: Pesticide Applicator Safety Training (in Spanish),” Oct. 30. Check out their Web page. For more information on these classes, call Jan Egli at 503-678-1264, ext. 110, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
