Summary of the Day  California has been experiencing some of the most horrific wildfire seasons in it’s history over the past few years, so it was very fitting to highlight Sierra Pacific Industries who is a leader in the forestry industry. They set standards from forest management, to managing the wildlife and botany that inhabit our forests, all the way to harvesting and recovering as much viable timber after a catastrophic forest fire. Join us in hearing from three experts in their fields when they talk about not only what they do, but the job opportunities for those interested and answer questions that relate to logging, wildlife, plants, and fire!

Summary of the Day  Have you ever wondered what Farm Bureau actually does? If so, join us on this field day where Kari Dodd, Tehama County Farm Bureau Manager, talks to the students about the important role Farm Bureau plays for farmers across our nation. She also had each student take the BOLD Personality Assessment prior to the actual field day and we plotted and discussed each students results as well as our results as a group. It was no surprise that most of the students had strong leadership personalities!

Each year they host our FARMS Leadership students and showcase the many career opportunities they offer. This field day, while being virtual, was no different! Students were able to go on a LIVE tour of their facility hosted by Logan Jennings the Director of Operations, as well as learn the many different jobs that people hold at California Olive Ranch. Mary Mori, Director of Technical Services, then took over and walked to students through an official Olive Oil Tasting using the generous kit they provided to each student.
