May 31, 2016 – weekly land trust news


PBS NewsHour recently did an excellent piece on the good work the High Desert Partnership is doing in Harney County, centered around the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The Wetlands Conservancy’s own Esther Lev is featured in the interview. Very much worth a watch. 

COLT’s weekly land trust news

May 31st, 2016

Warm Tuesday greetings everyone,

We hope you had a most pleasant and reflective Memorial Day weekend.

The recent PBS NewsHour piece on the work of the High Desert Partnership in Harney County, featuring The Wetlands Conservancy’s own Esther Lev, has been making the rounds here in the office, and for good reason. With all the attention the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge received earlier this year, the collaborative work in the region that had been cultivated over the last 10 years was largely overshadowed in the media. The news piece is a nice testament to their good and on-going work.

Enjoy the rest of this week’s news.

All the very best,


Upcoming grants, deadlines, and events
