Gorge commissioner speaks to Chinese delegation



White Salmon — Columbia River Gorge Commissioner Rodger Nichols spoke April 1 to a delegation from China’s Ministry of Land and Resources as part of a training program developed by the China-U.S. Center for Sustainable Development. The center is a public-private partnership that facilitates active participation and cross-cultural learning and encourages discussions of complex land-use issues. In March, commissioners and staff hosted a similar discussion with visiting mayors from Ecuador’s World Heritage Site at the Galapagos Islands.
