Siletz Tribe Charitable Fund Supports District Projects

The district wants to thank the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund.

On February 7, 2020 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. An additional $6,000 grant was awarded July 28, 2020 to help with the purchase of an equipment trailer. Both of these grants fulfill huge needs for the district.

The fire trailer will help protect district properties during fire season and 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 meets Oregon Department of Forestry 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 time saver and give staff increased flexibility to implement work at appropriate times.

Thank You to the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund!
