Happy Birthday, O&C Act!
On this day in 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Oregon and California Lands Act into law. These “O & C lands” in western Oregon are managed by the BLM for sustainable forest production, watershed protection, and world-class recreation. Revenue from the management of these lands helps develop and protect recreation areas across western Oregon, including Wildwood Recreation Site pictured here. Just a short drive from Portland, Wildwood offers lush hiking trails, gorgeous picnic spots, and natural wetland ecosystems, making it a major draw for outdoor enthusiasts, families, and classroom fieldtrips alike! http://on.doi.gov/ueUHJw
