A long goodbye for Oregon horticulturalist (Good Fruit Grower)

A long goodbye for Oregon horticulturalist (Good Fruit Grower)
Thursday’s preharvest cherry tour, held every year in the Columbia Gorge areas of Washington and Oregon, concluded with a farewell celebration to Lynn Long, the horticulturist who usually leads it. At the end of June, Long, 63, is partially retiring from his 29-year post at the Oregon State University extension office in The Dalles, Oregon.
