Please feel free to contact any of our board members if you are interested in becoming a member, donating or volunteering at any of our activities. Thanks Again!!!


Since the last chapter meeting, there has been several developments OHA members should be keyed into. First, five new members of the ODFW Commission have been appointed by Gov. Brown. They represent a diverse arena, and as might be suspected, three have been singled out as anti-conservationists by the usual organizations. (Think wolf plan opponents)

  • Capt.James Nash, USMC Ret., is a hunter, ranch manager, from Enterprise OR
  • Mark Labhart, Tillamook Co. Commissioner Ret., and held several positions over his career that is long and impressive.
  • Robert Spelbrink is a retired commercial fisherman, claims to be an avid sportfisher and hunter.
  • Mary Wahl of Curry Co., former Dvsn Administrator- OR DEQ. And a manager in City of Portland Environmental Services.
  • Jill Zarnowitz, formerly worked for ODFW as a water policy specialist, and Div. Administrator.

The resumes of each proposed commissioner are long and vast. Please take a moment to review. Their seating vote takes place in the Senate Ways and Means on May 8th.
The actual applications and supporting documents can be found at:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Z0T…GWWBTAusq/viewBTAusq/view

There will be an update of OR legislative proceedings at the May chapter meeting.
