Default Browns Camp Update

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, we had planned on opening Browns Camp on Friday, March 20. However, due to snow conditions (it's not melting and we're still getting more) we have not been able to get into Browns Camp to complete the work necessary to get the facility ready for visitors. Therefore, Browns Camp will not be opening in March. I will e-mail as soon as anything changes, in the meantime please continue to check the website for updates>

Thanks for your understanding.

Default Help!

FORESTRY BOARD INVITES PUBLIC HELP IN CRAFTING UPCOMING PRIORITIES

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Distribution: Major Media
April 8, 2009 Contact: Dan Postrel
09-13 PH: 503-945-7420


What issues should the Oregon Board of Forestry put on its priority list as it works toward its goal of sound, sustainable management of Oregon's forests? Through its 2009 biennial issue scan, the seven-member board is inviting the public to help answer that question.

Through May 22, people are invited to suggest forest-related issues for the board to consider as it sets its priorities for the next two years.

"During economic times such as these, careful priority-setting is more important than ever," said Dan Postrel, agency affairs director with the Oregon Department of Forestry. "Forests cover almost half of Oregon's land area, and are essential to our state's well-being, quality of life, and culture. The board is seeking ideas about how this resource can be managed sustainably to benefit all Oregonians."

More information about the issue scan, including background on the board's current priorities, work plans and strategies, is available on the board's Web site, at www.oregon.gov/odf/board<http://www.oregon.gov/dof/board>.

Input for the 2009 issue scan may be:


* Submitted from the board's Web site.
* Sent by postal mail to Oregon Department of Forestry, Dan Postrel, 2600 State Street, Salem, OR 97310.
* Faxed to Dan Postrel's attention at 503-945-7212.
Web and fax submissions must be received by 5 p.m. on May 22. Mailed comments must be postmarked by that date. People are asked to limit the description of each proposed issue to 500 words.

A work group that includes two members of the board will review and organize the ideas, seek additional information if necessary, and pass the comments along to the full board, with recommendations about priorities.

The Board of Forestry, appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state Senate, oversees all forest policy matters within the state's jurisdiction. The board's duties include appointing the state forester, setting management direction for state-owned forests, and adopting rules regulating timber harvest on private land. The board also provides a forum for public discussion and policy-making that addresses all of Oregon's forests.

The board uses its overarching strategic policy document, the Forestry Program for Oregon, for guidance as it sets priorities and plans its work. Information about the document, which emphasizes sustainability of a wide range of forest values, is also available at www.oregon.gov/odf/board<http://www.oregon.gov/odf/board>.

This could determain if the forest and camp grounds will stay open!
