COLT’s weekly land trust news

July 25th, 2016

Greetings for another bountiful summer week!

The OWEB board meeting is coming up Tuesday & Wednesday this week, July 26th & 27th, at Otter Rock. The OWEB staff reports and meeting agenda can be accessed here. For those of you not attending, we’ll work toward providing any pertinent information from the meeting over the next coming weeks.

On that note, both Mike and I will be out of the office from Monday, August 1st-8th. We’ll aim to send out weekly news on the 1st, but will be taking a break on the 8th and returning with the weekly news on the 15th.

Again, if you are planning on attending COLT’s summer board meeting at Camp Sherman, September 15th & 16th, please reserve a cabin soon as they are filling up! If you are traveling singly, or think you might have an extra room/bed to offer to those traveling singly, we are working on matchmaking cabin mates. For those of you looking to camp, there are lots of camping options and other accommodations in the area as well.

Also, in conjunction with our board meeting in Camp Sherman, we are planning on a casual COLT reception for members and friends in either Bend or Sisters on the evening of Wednesday September 14th from 6-8pm or so. More details to come, but please do mark your calendars!

Finally, just a reminder to mark your calendars for the 2017 Land Camp, April 10th-12th, at the Menucha Retreat and Conference Center in the Columbia Gorge. We’ll send out more information in the next few months.

Be in touch if you have any questions/concerns, and wishing you all the best for an enjoyable week!
