Renewable Energy & Eastern Oregon Landscape Conservation Symposium NOVEMBER 9, 2010 - The Riverhouse Conference Center - Bend, Oregon

The Renewable Energy and Eastern Oregon Landscape Partnership is hosting a day-long discussion about renewable energy opportunities and conservation issues east of the Cascade Mountains. The Partnership is a collaborative effort of government agencies to address the needs and issues inherent to renewable energy and habitat conservation.

The symposium will focus primarily on wind energy development and sagebrush habitat conservation. Other renewable energy opportunities and habitat types in eastern Oregon may be discussed to a lesser extent during the day.

The purpose of this symposium is to:

  • Introduce the Renewable Energy and Eastern Oregon Landscape Partnership effort and share information on recent agency collaboration and mapping efforts related to wind energy.
  • Share perspectives and information, and build relationships among agencies and other stakeholders with respect to renewable energy trends and technology, economic development, and landscape conservation goals in eastern Oregon.
  • Discuss opportunities for building on and expanding collaborative efforts through the Partnership.

Please share this with other interested stakeholders. No charge to attend, but space is limited. Registration will be required and available on a "first come, first served" basis.

Please contact Mari Saint-Pierre, National Policy Consensus Center (NPCC) Training Program Coordinator at 503-725-8114 or msaint2@pdx.edu with questions or to register for the symposium.
