With a big thanks to our friend Perry Young and all the great staff at the Southern Oregon Educational Service District we bring you some local programming on RVTV Channels 9 and 21 this weekend that will inform you about a prominent geological feature as well as introduce you to some wildlife neighbors in the Rogue Valley. SOESD used to operate Charter cable channel 16 and over time developed a wide ranging library featuring educational topics and teachers from the local school districts. On Channel 9 Saturday at 10:30am it’s the history, geology, botany, and fire ecology of the Table Rocks on the north banks of the Rogue River near White City. Sunday at 10:30am check out the Animal Tracks series, with information about predators, birds of prey, tidepool creatures, you name it. On Grants Pass Channel 21 you get both series on Sunday, Table Rocks at 10:30am, Animal Tracks at 3:30pm.
Although SOU students have been away from the Digital Media Center this week it’s not going to stay quiet for long. Citizen producers from all over Southern Oregon and Northern California converge each weekend to use the facility for production classes, live studio shows, and taping sessions. RVTV Channel 15 is where their work is showcased, and you can join them. The Public Access effort is fueled by volunteers helping one another create programs that educate, entertain, and enlighten. RVTV has a great new point man working with our Community Producers, Charles Douglas. You can learn more on the PA pages here on the website or you can contact Charles at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And we leave you with good thoughts for the Easter weekend ahead. A great day for families, friends, and communities to come together, a joyous spiritual day as well. Reflect and refresh. See you Monday.
