January 23, 2017: TNC’s Conserving Nature’s Stage, Zinke hearing, and more


COLT’s weekly land trust news

Monday January 23rd, 2017

Good words, from Gary Snyder and the North Coast Land Conservancy.

Hi folks,

Couple of things before heading into this week’s news and info.

A quick reminder about COLT’s upcoming free webinar on NRCS’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program in Oregon, this Wednesday the 25th from 12-2pm. If you haven’t already, be sure to register.

Also, The Nature Conservancy of Oregon just sent out a “heads up” that they will be releasing a request for Potential Projects for Round 2 of Conserving Nature’s Stage: Pacific Northwest Land Protection Program.  The announcement will be made no later than February 3rd via email with materials available on the Conservation Gateway website.  As they did for the first round, they will ask for basic information on projects that you think meet the criteria to be eligible for funding. Potential Project materials will be due by February 14.

Finally, we will be opening registration for the Northwest Land Camp (April 10th-12th) in the first week of February, so stay tuned for that excitement.

Onward to this week’s enews!

All the best,

Mike Running
Communication and Outreach Manager
