    Hard-Working Monument Turns 14 Years Young!

    Hard to believe it was 14 years ago, but the Cascade Siskiyou became a National Monument on June 9, 2000.

    The BLM-managed Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument in Oregon was the first monument set aside solely for the preservation of biodiversity. Due to several complex biological and geological factors and processes operating simultaneously, the monument contains an unusually high variety of species in a geographically small area.

    Located at the crossroads of the Cascade, Klamath, and Siskiyou mountain ranges, scientists have long recognized the outstanding ecological values of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. The convergence of three geologically distinct mountain ranges resulted in an area with remarkable biological diversity and a tremendously varied landscape. Many archaeological and historical sites are also found throughout the Monument, providing clues to Native American use of the area and tracing portions of the historic Oregon/California Trail.  Some of the best ways to explore this unique landscape include visiting the Hyatt Lake Recreation Complex and hiking on the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail.

    Check out this short movie about the Monument, and then head on over to our website for more information. #GetOutdoors
