Oregon Conservation and Recreation Advisory Committee meets June 4

June 3, 2021

SALEM, Ore.—The Oregon Conservation and Recreation Advisory Committee will hold an online meeting on June 4 at 10 a.m. to discuss fundraising success for the Oregon Conservation and Recreation Fund, plan for the future of the program and gather feedback from the public.

The meeting agenda and Zoom link are available on the Committee’s meeting page.

The Oregon Conservation and Recreation Fund (OCRF), a public-private partnership that supports projects to implement the Oregon Conservation Strategy and connect people with the outdoors, has successfully funded 29 projects from a total of $420,000 generated from private donations.

These projects range from preparing to restore sea otters to the Oregon coast to programs to introduce youth to birdwatching activities in urban areas and finishing a road crossing structure for wildlife along highway 97.

A full list of projects funded by OCRF is available online.

Public support via donations to the OCRF for conserving wildlife, habitat and connecting people with nature shows that Oregonians care about preserving the wildlife and natural spaces that make Oregon so special.

A coalition of more than 70 partner organizations has supported fundraising for the OCRF and partnered with the Advisory Committee to implement projects throughout Oregon. Contributions can be made online via OregonIsAlive.org.

This program was created by the legislature in 2019 with an end date of June 30, 2021. There are multiple bills still alive this legislative session that would extend the program and appropriate state General Fund to the OCRF.
