Tribal lands partially re-opened

07.07.2015 Dean Rhodes Tribal Council, Natural Resources

On Monday, July 6, Tribal Council met with staff from the Natural Resources Department to reassess the closure of Tribal timber lands and revisit the precaution level currently in effect for the Grand Ronde Reservation and Tribal timber lands.

Although the continued heat advisory is in effect, Tribal Council and staff have made the decision to reopen the access gates leading to the Tribal timber lands. However, Big Buck Campground, within the timber lands, will remain closed until the fire danger has dropped to an acceptable level and the closure is re-evaluated.

Tribal Council and staff are currently looking at solutions and will keep Tribal members and staff updated. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

If you see a fire, please call 911 immediately.
