It is important to celebrate our victories, and today we get to talk about two of them!

The Oregon Board of Forestry (BoF) recently voted to approve its first ever Habitat Conservation Plan on State Forests, and a bill to fully fund and strengthen Oregon's Marine Reserve Program sailed through the recent legislative session.

To talk about these victories and get updates on what's ahead for both of these campaigns, I'm joined today by one of the leaders of each of these efforts. Charlie Plybon from Surfrider Foundation will discuss the OMRP legislation and what's next for ocean conservation, and Michael Lang from the Wild Salmon Center will give us an update on the BoF's historic vote.

Guests:  Charlie Plybon - Surfrider;  Michael Lang - Wild Salmon Center 
Host:  Michael Gaskill

Coast Range Radio is a syndicated program produced by the Coast Range Association,
a 501c(3) nonprofit that has been working since 1991 to find just protections for Western Oregon’s forests while supporting a vibrant rural economy. The CRA’s work looks to address the underlying causes of social and environmental problems and seeks to instill common understanding, foster social unity, and provide practical solutions.

On this show, we interview folks who work to build just communities that provide for people and the natural world. We are particularly interested in the connections between Oregon's forests, social justice, and the climate crisis.
