Management Commission



South Slough NERR Management Commission
Oregon statute (O.R.S. 273.554) created the South Slough NERR Management Commission as the Reserve's sole governing body.  The Commission is responsible for the day-to-day operation and management of the Reserve including establishing operating policies and administrative rules for the operation of the Reserve.
As per statute, the nine members of the Commission are appointed by the Governor and serve as representatives of specific institutions, agencies, and other constituencies.  The Director of the Department of State Lands serves as permanent chair of the Commission.  The authority of the Commission is to be consistent with the policies formulated by the State Land Board as well as state and federal laws.
The South Slough NERR Management Commission is empowered by statute to appoint a manager and other staff, through whom the Commission conducts the day-to-day management and operations of the Reserve.  The Commission may apply for, receive, and expend federal, state, and other funds for Reserve purposes.  Commissioners review Reserve activities and proposed initiatives at public meetings held three times a year.

The next regularly scheduled business meeting will be held on Thursday December 8, 2016.  The meeting is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm and will be held in the auditorim of the South Slough Reserve Interpretive Center in Charleston, Oregon.
