At the beginning of this year, I began working with the Lincoln County OLCV steering committee. Right away, I realized that they were a great team to work with, and felt fortunate to work with such great people on Oregon’s beautiful coast.

Have you heard the great news? Last week Portland became the first city in Oregon to ban single-use plastic bags!   

And on the heels of this bold leadership from Portland, Newport is beginning to discuss how to promote reusable bags and, eventually, phase out these single-use plastic bags.

Right now our legislative leaders in Salem are working to assemble Oregon’s budget for the next two years. While this is a tough job, it’s also one of the most critical ones for our environment.

Every ten years, our state legislative leaders are tasked with redrawing our state's legislative and congressional districts. 

And today, these leaders released the first round of potential redistricting maps. 

One of OLCV's prime missions is to help pass good pro-conservation legislation by electing environmental champions. The final forms of these maps will directly impact what sort of champions we can send to Salem who will work to protect Oregon's great natural legacy.

At our 14th Annual Celebration for the Environment, Governor John Kitzhaber offered stirring remarks about the importance of the OLCV and our work on myriad conservation issues. And he affirmed his commitment to work with us to protect Oregon's great natural legacy for future generations. 

Here's just a small sample of his remarks:

Since I was last in office, you have had a truly productive eight years – organizing, educating, and sometimes scratching and clawing to protect Oregon’s land, air and water for future generations.
