  • Oregon Department of Agriculture entomologist Jim LaBonte fills us in on the “crazy snake worm.” This invasive species of earthworm recently discovered in Oregon could pose a threat to northwest forests.
  • Earlier this summer, we visited the Tule Lake Pilgrimage, a biannual gathering of Japanese Americans who were interned at the Tule Lake camp on the southern border of Oregon, and their descendants.  We hear from Dr. Satsuki Ina, Jimi Yamaichi and Akemi Yamane.
