Find out how they do it, where they reside, and which kinds inhabit the Pacific Northwest.  Come learn from John Mullen, Oregon State Parks Manager, as he explores these unique animals and their mysterious ways! Before becoming a Park Manager, John Mullen was the President of Central Illinois Audubon Society for eight years. During this period he also served as the natural resource manager for more than 8,000 acres of oak hickory woodlands and prairies with the Peoria Park District. Prior to his time in Illinois, he worked as a wildlife biologist with Oregon State University and the Siuslaw National Forest, much of the time surveying and monitoring spotted owls as well as other birds in the Oregon Coast Range.

    Ken and Janet's Excellent Adventure

    Friday, April 29, 2016

    Estacada Public Library Flora Community Room

    7 p.m.

    They have visited every state park and recreation area in Oregon and are coming to Estacada Library to tell you about Ken and Janet's Excellent Adventure!
    While camping at Ft. Stevens State Park on New Year's Eve, 2000, Ken and Janet Jackson realized that they kept returning to the same few state parks. They decided to visit all of the parks and set a goal to complete their mission by the end of 2010. Over the next 10 years, they visited every park, natural area, heritage site, rest area, scenic viewpoint, recreation site, wayside, and scenic corridor. Although both Janet and Ken were born and raised in Oregon, they discovered there was a lot of our beautiful state they had never seen and learned more about the history, geology and geography of Oregon than they ever learned in school! This program will take you to some of the familiar parks and a lot of the lesser known places they visited as the criss-crossed the state many times.
