March Events

March 25th Council members turned out at LCC to hear the well known environmentalist Bruce Newhouse discuss how the nature of the Willamette Valley has changed over time, including the history of how our landscapes evolved over time, how they were managed by the natives, and how we do it now. He discussed some large scale efforts (such as the Oregon Conservation Strategy), midrange efforts (Watershed Council planning) and some on-the-ground projects as a great overview on management efforts for the valley. Also, Tom Andrade of the Oregon Department of Forestry provided a brief Update on the Oregon Forestland-Urban Interface Fire Protection Act (Senate Bill 360).
