Facebook Audubon Society of Portland: Speak up to Protect Urban Tree Canopy in Clackamas County: On June 8 the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on a proposal to increase tree protections in unincorporated areas inside the Urban Growth Boundary. The new tree protections will ensure the retention of more urban tree canopy when and where urban development occurs. New urban tree protections are critical to prevent the wholesale clear-cutting of trees in advance of development. This will ensure that more trees can be incorporated into new development for people, wildlife, clean water and public health.
We need you to speak up for adoption of strong tree protection in urban Clackamas County!
The public hearing is at 6:30pm Tuesday, June 8 at the Clackamas County Public Services Building, 2051 Kaen Rd, Oregon City.
