November 19, 2010 – Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Field Guide featured Foundation grantee Farmers Conservation Alliance (FCA) and their Farmers Screen technology in an episode that premiered October 28. The Oregon Field Guide film crew spent more than four days shooting in and around the Hood River area, visiting several Farmers Screen sites, farms, hatchery and hydro facilities, as well as talking with farmers and fish biologists to put together the story.
