A Great Story of Partnership for Armed Forces Day, May 18th!
A win-win for BLM-Oregon! The Horning Seed Orchard in Colton needed buildings but didn’t have enough funding. What to do? Enter into a partnership with the Oregon National Guard that happened to have their mandatory annual training coming up. So for the past two weeks, this engineering unit from the Guard was able to complete their training to maintain and improve their readiness skills by constructing these structures for public lands. In the end, the Guard is more prepared for deployments, and the public lands receive important improvements - which ultimately provides cost-effective savings for everyone. Thank you, Oregon National Guard!
