Federal Forestlands Advisory Committee meets June 3
05/27/2008
 
WHAT: Giving Oregonians a greater voice in charting the future of federal forestlands and how those lands can better contribute to Oregon’s environmental, economic, and social well-being.
 
Agenda topics for this meeting include reviewing the information that will be presented and discussed at a joint meeting with the Oregon Board of Forestry in the afternoon.
 
WHO: The Oregon Board of Forestry’s Federal Forestlands Advisory Committee
 
WHEN: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 3, 2008
 
WHERE: Oregon Department of Forestry headquarters – Building C, 2600 State St., Salem
 
WHY: Federal forests cover more than 16 million acres in Oregon – about 58 percent of the state’s forest land base.  The wide range of values that these forests provide – recreation, wilderness, access, wildlife, water, and timber – are critical to Oregon’s economy, social fabric, and environmental health. Accordingly, the Governor and the Oregon legislature have called on the Board of Forestry to help develop a vision for the role of federal forestlands in Oregon.
