The district wants to say a huge thank you to the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund. In February the district received a $6,000 grant award to help with the purchase of a fire trailer, hose, and gear to protect conservation acres managed by the district. In July the district received an additional $6,000 grant award to help with the purchase of an equipment trailer. Both of these grants help meet huge needs for the district. The fire trailer will provide a higher level of safety and liability protection to the resources that our staff, previous landowners, and partners have invested in. The fire trailer (pictured below) meets Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) specifications and can be deployed whenever work with an associated fire risk is being completed.

The equipment trailer will help the district facilitate property management activities more efficiently by increasing our ability to move district owned conservation equipment. Currently, the district relies on volunteers, contractors, and/or trailer rentals to move equipment. Being able to move equipment on demand will be a large time saver and give staff increased flexibility to implement work at appropriate times.

Thank You to the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund!
