WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Six Oregon conservation projects have received federal funds through a new program designed to support public-private partnerships. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden supported the Regional Conservation Partnership Program as part of the 2014 Farm Bill.
Senator Wyden says the six projects will receive a combined 22-million dollars, including $9-million for the "Oregon Model To Protect Sage Grouse." Other projects receiving funding: North Slope Ochoco Holistic Restoration Project ($5m), Klamath-Rogue Oak Woodland Health and Habitat Conservation Project ($3m), White River Irrigation Efficiency and Stream Flow Restoration Project ($2m), North Willamette Valley Upland Oak Restoration Partnership ($2.2m) and Unlocking Carbon Markets for NIPF Landowners in the Pacific Northwest ($1m).
