Good morning everyone and Happy Monday,

    • If you are planning on attending the OWEB meeting, please let Mike know as it would be good to have a sense of who will be there.
  • Additionally, Senator Wyden is scheduled to host town hall meetings in Grant, Harney and Malheur counties on Wed, July 20th. You can find more information on these gatherings here.
  • If you are planning on attending COLT’s summer board meeting at Camp Sherman September 15th and 16th, make sure you reserve a cabin soon; they are filling up!
    • There are lots of camping options and other accommodations in the area as well.
  • Finally, the dates for the 2017 Land Camp are now set, so mark your calendars! April 10-12th at the Menucha Retreat and Conference Center in the Columbia Gorge

We hope this finds you well, as always, and please be in touch if you have any questions.
