September 26, 2016 – weekly land trust news


Greenbelt Land Trust’s recent tour of Cascadia Cave and its Kalapuya petroglyphs was, in their words, “simply awesome!”

COLT’s weekly land trust news

Monday September 26th, 2016

Hi everyone,

First off, there are a couple of items to call your attention to:

  • A new report entitled The Future of Oregon’s Agricultural Land looks at trends in Oregon land tenure
  • As part of ODFW’s exploration of new funding for fish and wildlife, a recent survey of Oregonians examined opinions related to the protection of fish, wildlife, and habitat, among other matters.
    • No surprise to many of us, people in the survey listed habitat loss as the number one fish, wildlife, or habitat issues facing Oregon today (found on page 7 of the report).

Other news and information posted below for your use.

Hope this finds everyone very well.

Fortunately for the hikers, the weather got much better on the last two days.
