COLT’s weekly land trust news

June 22nd, 2015

Hope everyone had a very nice weekend.

A couple of things first before this week’s litany of news and more.

Town Halls
Sen. Wyden will hold a number of upcoming town halls:

Regional Conservation Meetings this Summer
Many of you probably saw the update from the Network of Oregon Watershed Councils announcing the newly-formed Oregon Conservation Partnership (OCP), of which COLT is affiliated. This collaborative partnership, which has been active for the last couple of years, now has a formal name with “OCP”.

As we did last summer, the partnership will be holding a series of regional meetings around the state for conservation professionals to gather and talk together and with natural resource agency representatives about common issues, challenges, and opportunities. This will be a chance for board and staff of watershed councils, conservation districts, and land trusts, along with other conservation organizations, to meet together with natural resource agency representatives to discuss matters important to our work.

Check-out the flyer for the meetings, each of which will run from 10:30am-3pm, which lunch included. Please mark your calendars. The meetings will be held on:

  • July 7th: Pendleton – Blue Mountain Community College
    • 2411 NW Carden Ave, Pendleton, OR 97801
  • July 8th: Burns – Harney County Community Center
    • 484 N Broadway Ave Burns, OR
  • July 14th: Portland – Monarch Hotel
    • 12566 SE 93rd Ave, Clackamas, OR 97015

Before each meeting, COLT will reach out to each land trust working in the region where the meetings will be held. Last year we, land trusts provided a key voice and important tools to the discussions, and we hope this will be the same this year. Your participation will be very valuable.
