The Governor’s Natural Resource Office and state agencies are hosting a series of conversations about Oregon’s built and natural water infrastructure to inform Oregon’s 100-Year Water Vision. As experts in watershed management and conservation, members of the Oregon Conservation Partnership (Watershed Councils, Land Trusts, and SWCDs) are key voices in this conversation. Please join these conversations to share your expertise on the ecosystems and watersheds forming our natural resources, and share this opportunity with other leaders in protecting Oregon’s water resources.
Each Community Conversation will be a half-day grounding in the Vision’s goal areas (Health, Safety, Environment, and Economy), and a facilitated dialogue to discuss the unique water challenges and opportunities across Oregon’s regions. These Conversations are intended for local community leaders who have an interest in water, want to learn more about Oregon’s 100-Year Water Vision, and would like to have a hand in shaping the Vision.
There are several Conversations taking place in different places across the state from October 22 to November 7, plus two virtual meetings November 13 and 15.
The goal of the Technical Workshop is to help state agencies and other water stakeholders better understand key water management decisions, the data on which they are based, and what key information gaps exist. It is intended for people who regularly access and use water data to make decisions about built and natural water infrastructure.
