Bringing together Oregon’s future leaders from agriculture, fishing and forestry is innovative and forward thinking.  REAL Oregon cultivates leaders through hands-on learning and helps them build relationships within natural resources.  I am excited to see graduates from the program use their skills to effectively promote our industry to all Oregonians.Alexis Taylor
