1,000 Friends Friends Bend Again

Posted By on Thu, May 13, 2010 at 9:37 PM

Environmentalists rejoice! Oregon's pre-eminent statewide conservation group 1,000 Friends of Oregon is kicking of its renewed commitment to Central Oregon with an open house this evening at its new regional office, conveniently located above the Summit Saloon and Stage. Festivities begin at 7 p.m at the Summit where light refreshment will be served, according to the group. Executive Director Jason Miner will be on hand to talk about the organization's statewide plans as well as its plans for Central Oregon where the group has hired two staff members, local land use attorney Pam Hardy (formerly of Central Oregon Landwatch) and Ben Gordon, formerly of OLCV, to advocate for conservation causes in our backyard. The event concludes with a tour of the new offices which will be newly furnished with works from local artist Genessa Goodman Campbell (who also happens to work for the Oregon Natural Desert Association) and photographer Jim Davis. The event is free and open to the public.

"We want to bring the community together to know we're here, engage in some dialogue and get used to the idea of coming to our office," Gordon said.
