Dear Readers:

Spring in all her glory has arrived in Nebraska, which, of course, means 
it's notebook time! I am helping Bruce Wight and Rich Straight at the 
National Agroforestry Center, www.unl.edu/nac, prepare a resource notebook 
for the 1890 Land-Grant Universities Agroforestry Conference from June 13 to 
15, 2000, at Alabama A & M University. The specifics are listed below.

We are looking for show stopping teaching materials for these agroforestry 
practices; silvopasture, forest farming, and riparian buffers. Have you put 
together a course, presentation, or hands-on exercise? Has your local Soil 
and Water Conservation District developed a great factsheet? Do you know 
farmers who are using these practices? Trees don't worry about state 
borders, and you shouldn't either. If you know of engaging educational 
materials in agroforestry, contact us. Thank you for your help.

Please send your ideas, suggestions, or materials to:
