Cleaner air. Cleaner water. Preservation of natural habitats. Future stewards.
Three measures appearing on the ballot this November are of particular interest to many Intertwine Alliance partners and friends. Supporters, now is the time to step up and take action!
- A measure to create a permanent funding base for the Tualatin Soil and Water Conversation District will support programs to improve air, water and soil quality, community education programs and healthy habitats by removing invasive species.
- Measure 26-178, Protect Our Natural Areas, preserves our region’s legacy of protecting natural areas and water quality, restoring fish and wildlife, and connecting people with nature. Voters in the Metro region will be asked to renew the 2013 parks and natural areas levy this November, helping to protect 17,000 acres of parks, trails and natural areas without raising taxes. The levy supports Metro's Nature in Neighborhoods program, which benefits so many Intertwine partners.
- Measure 99, Outdoor School for All, will give every Oregon fifth and sixth-grader a hands-on week of science-based, outdoor education to get kids off their screens, build self-confidence and self-reliance, strengthen leadership and collaborative skills, and connect them with Oregon’s great outdoors.
As a service to our many partners who support these efforts, The Intertwine Alliance is hosting Investing for a Green Future, a gathering to celebrate the work and to set a direction for success. Please join us for an evening of fun, learning and strategizing! There'll be hors d'oeuvres and wine/beer, loads of important campaign information, and plenty of time to socialize.
