COLT’s weekly land trust news
March 21st, 2016
Good Monday folks,
It was great to see many of our friends, partners, and colleagues last week for our State of the Lands celebration here in Portland.
First off, there are a couple of fresh opportunities I wanted to bring to your attention:
Finally, the good folks over at The Wetlands Conservancy asked us to pass along the following opportunity to help promote American Wetlands Month (link is to last year’s page):
“May marks the 25th anniversary of American Wetlands Month, a time when federal, state, tribal, local, non-profit, and private sector organizations celebrate the vital importance of wetlands.
“Since conservation of Oregon’s Wetlands is our mission, you might guess we have all kinds of plans for the month of May to celebrate Oregon’s wet, squishy, biologically diverse places. The goal is wetlands awareness and exploration.
“We are planning to have a calendar of wetland events (education, events, exploration, work days in wetlands and estuaries) from all over the state. We would love to include and publicize any of your events and link people to your websites. Your projects and stewardship of wetlands help us implement our mission and we want to share that story.”
If you are planning an event please send TWC’s Kendra Manton:
- Name of your Event
- Short Description
- Date, Time
- Link on your website for more info
Their plan is to create a calendar of events that will then link to your individual websites. They look forward to posting and publicizing your great work in wetlands!
Enjoy this week’s news and more. There are some great articles that featured Oregon land trusts this past week.
All the very best,
