COLT’s weekly land trust news

Monday November 28, 2016

Hi everyone,

We hope you had an in-joyable Thanksgiving weekend among family and friends, domestic or wild.

Please find below the latest news that came across our virtual desks over the past week.

If you haven’t already, please let me know if you are planning on coming to COLT’s board meeting on December 8th here in Portland. Those of you on the board should have received an email from Kelley last week with the details.

Wishing everyone a pleasant week ahead.


Mike Running
Communication and Outreach Manager

P.S. FYI, we archive each of these Monday news emails here on our website. While they aren’t the easiest to search, they are accessible if you need to look something up. You can also always contact me if you have any questions.
