Save the Date – Nov 17 and Senator-elect Sara Gelser
ORTWS will be meeting with Senator-elect Sara Gelser on November 17th to discuss the viewpoints of our Membership and let her know how many biologists are in her district. She is running for Senate on a strong platform focused on family and education, and ORTWS is providing our members this opportunity to discuss pressing issues in the realm of wildlife. The Wild Bird Seed bill, science in legislation, and the importance of wildlife management are just some of the topics we will likely discuss.
We strongly encourage all members that live in Senate District 8 to attend, as Senator-elect Gelser is now your representative! Other members are welcome as well! If you are curious if you are in District 8, you can check the State Senate Interactive Map here; District 8 covers Corvallis, Philomath, Albany, and Tangent, plus outlying areas. Feel free to pass this along to other interested parties that may not be members – and encourage them to join! Dues are only $15 a year!
To help us get a feel for how many people may come, please RSVP to Vee Blackstone by November 14! And because it is convenient right below, click on the poll!
