“Forest, Farm and Water” Outreach
The Collaborative has created a plan to engage natural resource and farm based interests to advance support for its regional forest restoration strategy. This includes outreach to groups, organizations, interests and individuals with a primary interest in forest, farm and/or water issues. At the state level, presentations have also been made to the Oregon Governorʼs Office and Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. The Collaborative also been involved with the Governorʼs Federal Forest Advisory Committee through participation in meetings, networking and information sharing and outreach to state legislators in support of pending state sponsored funding support for forest collaboratives.
