The presentation will be followed by Q & A.

Viewers will be eligible to register for a group tour of the Mill Race in August.

The program will be recorded and posted by August 1st at www.sustainablecorvallis.org

 

We will be proposing the City of Corvallis and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) consider and include this proposal in their long-range planning. The project, if enacted will:

·         Regenerate a degraded urban waterway,

·         Reduce dangerous flooding in the areas near 99W,

·         Improve transportation safety crossing 99W,

·         Safely connect two economically and ethnically diverse neighborhoods segregated by State Highway 99W, and

·         Improve social equity issues in South Corvallis

 

The proposal has already been endorsed by the following local organizations:

·         Corvallis Environmental Center

·         Corvallis Sustainability Coalition

·         Freshwaters Illustrated

·         Greenbelt Land Trust

·         Marys Peak Group Sierra Club

·         Marys River Watershed Council


The webinar is sponsored and hosted by the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition Water Action Team.

I live within the traditional homeland of the Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya.  Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855 (Kalapuya …Treaty), Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations at either Grand Ronde or Siletz. Today, Kalapuya live either within the tribal reservations or in communities throughout the region. Many Kalapuya are active members of the sovereign nations of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde or the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. Kalapuya culture is alive.
