1,000 Friends of Oregon Farmer Advisory Committee

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
