Short Description of Activity
Connected with Amy Charette, Resource Manager for the Confederated Tribe of Warm Springs. Wanted to introduce ourselves, find out more about the work they are doing in the Bates area, how might we partner up with them and if our working with them would be doable.
Great conversation. Currently all tribal lands are closed, but we will check back in a few months to see if we can actually put plans in motion. Amy very excited to work with us. They have an office in John Day which primarily focuses on restoration projects. An office in Prairie City which manages properties and grow the plants they use for restoration projects. ( this would be a great opportunity for us to visit). They have 3 properties on the Middle Fork. Some of the projects we could help with would be planting and vegetation restoration. She shared a project for 2022 with stream restoration – moving fish, which we asked to keep us in mind. We can secure camping at Bates Campground as well as there are additional campgrounds available. Amy also shared that if we need catering, she can give me some names of who to contact. Will recontact Amy in a couple of months.
