COLT’s weekly land trust news

June 27th, 2016

Sunny Monday greetings everyone,

We’re almost a full week past the solstice and summer is officially underway!

This week, we have some refreshing changes within the land trust community: Columbia Land Trust revealed their first logo makeover in 25 years. Additionally, Blue Mountains Conservancy unveiled a new website design. More information in our Land Trust News section below.

In addition, some items carrying over from last week:

  • The Oregon Coastal Values survey by some researchers at PSU.
  • And for those who didn’t see it last week, a recent survey conducted by a Portland State University graduate student looks at landowner attitudes toward conservation easements in the Whychus Creek watershed. You can read more about the survey and Ashley Vizek’s work here on our website.

We hope you enjoy safe travels if applicable, and a safe holiday weekend!
