Public Comment Opportunity
June 10 - July 19, 2019
Send comments to Council staff or 
attend one of two upcoming webinars on
June 11th 6pm-8pm and June 14th 10am-12pm
to learn more about the Action Plan.
 

This OAH Action Plan was developed in recognition of the OAH impacts that we see today, in the hopes of minimizing the impacts for tomorrow, and altering the trajectory of ocean changes for future generations. Because Oregon is one of the first states to feel the impacts of OAH, it is our intent that the OAH Action Plan will contain actions that are meaningful locally, and in fighting the global challenges of climate and ocean changes.  Additionally, the Action Plan will serve as a model for others to apply to their own geographical and political context. Once adopted by Governor Brown, the Action Plan will guide Oregon’s efforts and become Oregon’s submission to the International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification, and thus will be shared with the region and world.

 

We, Oregon’s OAH Council, welcome and encourage public comment on this DRAFT from June 10th – July 9th of 2019.  Electronic copies of Oregon’s DRAFT OAH Action Plan are available for download at the OAH Council’s Website. Public comment may be made by contacting the Council’s staff or attending one of two informational webinars on the Action Plan (information below).
