Sixteen inches of snow had fallen around them and the family van was stuck. The sheriff's office says Shaver had extensive survival training and frequently camps with his children. Mark Shaver and his kids slept in the van for two nights until they were rescued unharmed early Sunday by the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Funds are available from for a conservation easements on nearly 300 acres of critical habitat near Salem — preserving and restoring rare oak savanna and prairie habitat and endangered species such as Fender's blue butterfly and Kincaid's lupine. BPA's $965,000 contribution meets part of its requirement under the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act for mitigating the effects of its dams on wildlife and habitat. The easements restrict development and call for management of the property in perpetuity. In the Willamette Valley, it's just the beginning of BPA's influence on conservation. About 19,000 acres were affected by the six power-producing dams in the Willamette basin. BPA has funded about 6,200 acres of mitigation, said Dorie Welch of BPA. The most recent acquisitions protect some of the rarest habitats in the Willamette Valley. Oak woodlands, oak savanna and prairie, the majority of which are held by private landowners, are subject to the typical pressures of a populated fertile valley: conversion to agriculture or development. "Land use has changed over the last 10 to 15 years so we've seen land prices increase and population incr ...
