Natural Area Program Rules Advisory Committee meets April 8 in Salem

April 5, 2019

SALEM, Ore. - The Natural Areas Program Rules Advisory Committee will meet at 10 a.m. – noon April 8 in the second floor meeting room at the Oregon State Archives Building, 800 Summer St. NE, Salem. The meeting is open the public.


Agenda items include discussing proposed amendments to rules guiding the Oregon State Natural Areas Program. The proposed rule amendments would:


• Allow for provisional registrations of natural areas under active restoration.
• Clarify language related to technology changes.
• Improve alignment of program operation directions with current goals.


No public comments will be accepted during the meeting; a comment period for the draft rules will be opened later this year.


The advisory committee is administrated by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD). Its eight volunteer members belong to various state agencies and nonprofit groups.


Individuals that require special accommodations to attend the meeting should contact Katie Gauthier, legislative and policy coordinator with OPRD, at least three days in advance: 503-947-8625 or Katie.Gauthier@oregon.gov.
