COLT’s weekly land trust news
Monday August 29th, 2016
Greetings land trusters!
It’s hard to believe August is already coming to a close and that our weather here in Portland will soon turn to cooler temperatures signaling the return of Fall.
This past week brought the National Park Service’s centennial anniversary. Let’s continue the joyous celebrations. We trust you’ll agree that every day is a perfect day to celebrate our public lands!
As a reminder, the deadline to submit pre-proposals for the 5th year of the Oregon Advancing Conservation Excellence (ACE) grant program is quickly approaching on Friday, September 9th. Catherine Waterston with Land Trust Alliance (firstname.lastname@example.org) can be of assistance if you have questions or are looking for more information.
Finally, we now have an invite for COLT and Deschutes Land Trust’s casual reception at the Deschutes Brewery on Wednesday September 14th from 5:30-7:30pm. If you are in area, we’d love to see you. Or if your land trust has members or supporters in Central Oregon, please feel free to send the invite along. Deschutes Brewery is kindly donating both the space and beer for the event.
This week, Mike will be sending out the agenda for COLT’s board meeting on the 15th and 16th of September at Camp Sherman. If you haven’t already, please let him know if you’ll be coming.
We hope this finds you well and thriving, and please always feel free to be in touch with any questions or concerns.
