During the month of January, there have been several email pleas asking for your help in convincing the Oregon Department of Forestry to not forbid nudity in state forests. The deadline is approaching quickly. Please act now if you haven’t already. Comments need to be received by February 8th. That is next Monday. If you are going to mail a letter in, please send it off today. If you are going to send an email, please don’t put it off. The discussion about these proposed rules can be found in the special alert that was sent out to this list (Subject: ALERT: Proposed New Rules for Nudity on Oregon State Forestry Lands ) and archived at http://www.aanr-nw.org/?p=1808936 . If you can’t find it or need more information, please contact Karen Lahey..
I will be traveling to the AANR Winter Board Meeting at Cypress Cove later this month (February 19-20). At that meeting, the presidents and trustees from across the organization discuss ideas both on the agenda and not on the agenda. If you are in Florida then, you should come to the meetings. One of the topics that has been discussed is finding out what members want from AANR. So my question for you is “What do you want from AANR?” Send what you think to firstname.lastname@example.org, I would really appreciate your feedback.
