PUBLIC LANDS -- Interior Secretary Sally Jewell will speak at the annual Ducks Unlimited convention this week during a visit to Portland in her first West Coast trip since she was sworn in last month.
Today Jewell and Portland Mayor Charlie Hales are set to announce nearly two dozen conservation projects to help boost youth employment, the Department of the Interior says.
On Friday, she, Gov. John Kitzhaber and a representative from Washington Gov. Jay Inslee will sign an agreement to speed the review and permitting of energy generation and power transmission projects in the Northwest.
