This group will NOT MEET in December. The next meeting will be January 20, 2021
The Natural Resources group meets monthly on the 3rd Wednesday, currently via ZOOM, at 2:30 pm. The URL for meeting is circulated to interested project members before the meeting. Contact Gary Clarida if you are interested in joining this project.
At the June 17th meeting, the group decided to focus on responding to, or engaging in, rulemaking related to the Governor’s Executive Order charge to promote carbon sequestration in the state’s natural and working lands.
The task of project members for the next meeting will be to read the Governor’s March 10th Executive Order plus the Department of Forestry and Department of Agriculture proposals on how they anticipate addressing the charge to their agencies. In the meantime, we will be trying to engage with the Departments of Forestry and Agriculture and the Oregon Global Warming Commission to find out what the timeline will be for the development of proposals and options for stakeholder input, and if and how we can engage more directly through participation on Rules Advisory Committees.
