News & Notes

We recently received a generous donation from Rita Poe, that will support the work of Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Rita's generous donation to Malheur and other public lands will allow future generations to enjoy the places she cherished. You can read Rita's interesting story below.

Iron Triangle, a Harney County Restoration Collaborative partner, is opening two new facilities in John Day and Seneca and will create at least 10 new jobs. The facilities will utilize low-value vegetation from the Malheur National Forest. Initially the facilities will produce posts, poles and chips, but may eventually manufacture torrefied products
