Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council meets September 17 in Baker City

Sept. 1, 2016

The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council will hold its fall meeting at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center five miles east of Baker City at 8:15 a.m. Saturday, September 17.

This meeting is free and open to the public. OHTAC will be discussing old business including the Barlow Trail Multimedia grant project, wind farm activity, council membership and terms, and more.

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. For information visit the OTHAC webpage or contact Loren Irving, 541-480-4167.
