All are welcome.  Refreshments will be provided.

Ken Franklin, Oregon Division of State Lands, will lead a discussion
of his use of systems dynamics and STELLA in the adaptive management

Franklin is currently working on a paper titled "Adaptive Resource
Management: A Capacity Performance Perspective."
