SALEM, Ore. – The Fish and Wildlife Commission has cancelled its public meeting scheduled for March 20 due to concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

ODFW will keep the public and all stakeholders informed as to when the Commission meeting may be rescheduled. 

In addition, other ODFW-related events have been cancelled or postponed. 

The Conservation and Recreation Fund (OCRF) Advisory Committee meeting scheduled for March 23 has been cancelled.
