Notable subjects include fruit production (pears and cherries) and ornamental horticulture (rhododendrons and lilies); Tillamook Bay oyster harvester; hop flavor analysis and beer testing; grape harvesting and wine production; and Oregon fish and wildlife such as spotted owls, eagles, wild turkeys, pheasants, elk, mountain sheep, wild horses, and salmon.
