Community meeting scheduled in Elgin, Oregon to discuss the
Umatilla National Forest’s current and future program of work

Walla Walla, WA – The Walla Walla Ranger District of the Umatilla National Forest plans to host a community meeting on Tuesday, November 3rd from 6:00 – 7:30pm at the Elgin Community Center.

“We want to outline our current and future program of work, address issues of concern, and answer any questions the public might have.” District Ranger Mike Rassbach said. Several resource specialists from the Walla Walla District will be on hand to discuss specific resource areas and answer questions.

“This gathering comes on the heels of a busy fire season when both the Phillips Creek Fire and Grizzly Bear Complex Incident Management Teams were housed at the Elgin Stampede grounds,” said Rassbach. “Fire will surely be a topic of discussion; however, I encourage the public to attend and engage in discussion around an array of Forest topics.
