Historic Trails Council to meet

ENTERPRISE — The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council will meet in Enterprise at 8 a.m. Sept. 8 at the Wilderness Inn, 301 W. North St. 

The meeting is open to the public.

In 1998, the governor established the council to oversee and provide advice on Oregon’s 16 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 the state. 

The council meets three times a year to explore at least one of the 16 designated historic trails. Guided by local residents and public agency experts, the council members evaluate and record trail conditions and discuss opportunities for the marking, interpretation and protection of the trails.
