Hopland REC Harvest Celebration 2018


A chance to celebrate our work and community!
This event will provide you with opportunities to support and engage with our research, the sheepdog trials, fire recovery and relax and enjoy fine food and great music.

We will start the day at 10am with a chance to enjoy the 7th annual Hopland Sheepdog Trial as part of the United States Border Collie Handlers’ Association (USBCHA) sanctioned Open Trials. From 10-11:30 Harvest Celebration participants will enjoy live commentary at the sheepdog trials to help keep up with the action. At 11:30 participants will then move from the trial field to enjoy a short hike and update with interim HREC Director, John Bailey.

At 12:30 we will come together in the Rod Shippey Hall for live music, a delicious farm to table lunch catered by Beth Keiffer and a live auction of experiences.
