The Oregon Global Warming Commission is seeking applicants to serve on a new Natural and Working Lands Advisory Committee to provide input on the implementation of the Commission’s Natural and Working Lands Proposal, which was adopted in August, 2021. For details, see the article in our Take Action section.

This may be of particular interest to those who care about the coast because one of the topics this advisory committee will deal with is “blue carbon”—the capacity of kelp beds, eelgrass beds, marshes, and tidal swamps to sequester carbon and this contribute to the effort to combat global warming.

An application is available online, and is due by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 5. Applications should be emailed to Oregon Global Warming Commission Chair Catherine Macdonald (cmacdonald@tnc.org), and to the Director of the Institute for Natural Resources, Lisa Gaines (lisa.gaines@oregonstate.edu).

For more information, contact Catherine Macdonald, (503) 475-6782
