Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council meeting in The Dalles

Aug. 21, 2018

The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council (OHTAC) will hold a meeting August 31, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Sorosis Park, 300 East Scenic Drive, The Dalles, Oregon.

The council will discuss recommendations to the Army for preservation of historic trails at the Umatilla Chemical Depot and planning of the final meeting of OHTAC and recognition of past members.

This meeting is free and open to the public. In 1998, the Governor established OHTAC to oversee and provide advice on Oregon’s16 historic trails. The Council is made up of nine governor-appointed volunteer-citizens working together to advise the Governor and to locate, preserve and encourage the use of these historic trails by Oregonians and visitors to our state. The Council meets three times a year to explore at least one of the 16 designated historic trails. Guided by local residents and/or public agency experts, the Council members evaluate and record trail conditions and discuss opportunities for the marking, interpretation and protection of the trails.
