COLT’s weekly land trust news
Wednesday, Sept. 7th, 2016
Greetings land trusters and happy belated Labor Day!
We hope you enjoyed a relaxing holiday weekend and that you were able to find some time to celebrate the fruits of your labor so far this year. Kelley came back from maternity leave yesterday and it is lovely having her back in the office, of course!
A few things to share in preparation for our board meeting next Thursday & Friday, Sept. 15th-16th at Camp Sherman:
- Wed, Sept. 14th from 5:30-7:30pm is our Member and Friend Reception with Deschutes Land Trust at the Deschutes Brewery Tap Room in downtown Bend. We’d love to see you if you’re able to join and please feel free to forward the invite here to any members or supporters residing in Central Oregon as well.
- Mike and Kelley recently finalized the board meeting agenda and Mike will be sending it out in the next day or two.
- If you haven’t already RSVP’d to the board meeting, please let Mike know you’ll be coming when you have a chance so we can look forward to seeing you.
In other news, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife released their updated Oregon Conservation Strategy late last week. See below for a few articles and links to explore this further.
Finally, the deadline to submit pre-proposals for the 5th year of the Oregon Advancing Conservation Excellence (ACE) grant program is this Friday, September 9th. Please contact Catherine Waterston with Land Trust Alliance (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or are looking for more information.
We hope this finds you well! Please always feel free to be in touch with any questions or concerns.
