Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts

“COLT member land trusts are hearing from interested farmers and ranchers who want to prevent future fragmentation of their land, keep local ways of life and safeguard the ecological values they steward. Land trusts can support private farm, ranch and forest owners by purchasing conservation easements to protect migratory corridors and habitat of native plants and animals. Easements can be drafted to still allow productive use on private land.”

1,000 Friends of Oregon Farmer Advisory Committee

“In order for Oregon agriculture to continue to thrive, it is necessary to maintain the land base on which the agricultural and forestry industries depend. 1000 Friends of Oregon and the farmers, ranchers, and foresters who comprise its Farmer Advisory Committee, share the belief that the best way to maintain the land base is through an effective land use planning program that builds livable urban areas and rural communities, protects family farms and forests, and conserves natural areas.

Participation opportunities include:
Training to understand the statewide land use planning program
Timely communications about working lands-related legislation and agency rule-making
Support that simplifies engagement with decision-makers to improve working land protections and prevent further rollbacks
Technical assistance with land use issues in your county
Involvement in working lands-policy creation at 1000 Friends of Oregon
