Come to the Fry Family Farm in Medford to hear a presentation by Oregon Climate and Agriculture Network (OrCAN) and Southern Oregon Climate Action Now (SOCAN) on Climate and Agriculture in the Legislature. The presentation will be from 4:00 to 5:30 pm on Friday, January 24, 2020.
When Oregon lawmakers convene in February of 2020 for a lightning-fast legislative session, they will reconsider state-wide policy approaches to curb Oregon’s climate pollution from our largest emitters.
Oregon Climate and Agriculture Network’s highest priority is engaging the agriculture community in advocating for a strong climate policy that recognizes the value of our farms and ranches in this fight.
Learn more about this policy and the opportunities for agriculture as part of the solution.
Oregon’s farms and ranches will play an important role in any climate change solution in Oregon. And the time is now for our legislators to step up to ensure a resilient future for Oregon.
For Oregon Climate and Agriculture Network, a successful policy must include the following:
· A limit on greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon
· Voluntary incentives for climate-friendly agricultural practices
· Investments in farmworker health and safety
They will cover:
· Up-to-date information on state-wide climate policy proposals and the opportunities for agriculture
· Q & A
· How you can get involved
For more information go to Climate and Agriculture in the Legislature.
