Thread: Motor Use

  1. #1

    Default Motor Use

    This is an FYI, as the initial announcement for this workshop, as well as an original job announcement (text of which attached by me, below) were apparently mailed to a quite narrowly targeted and mostly special interest audience. Please share with all outdoor users, groups, agencies, etc. that may be interested and effected.

    Perhaps well meaning overall, but seems a bit 'lopsided' initially - particularly from a SWCD, IMO. What is your take??
