Tonight’s Meeting: Historic Eagle Creek Fire

Just a quick reminder about the next Oregon AMS meeting tonight. We have added a quick presentation from Oregon AMS member Oca Hoeflein, who was introduced at the meeting at OMSI on October 28th. He took some amazing videos and photos of the gorge fire last summer and will share them with us at the top of the meeting, before John’s headlining presentation. We also have the date for the January meeting. See details below.
