Foundation Supports Parks Department Budget proposal

Our Executive Director, Seth Miller, recently testified to the Joint Ways & Means Committee reviewing the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department budget.  The Department is asking for a much needed increase in field staffing to deal with the explosive growth in usage of the State Parks system (more than 54 million visits last year!), and for a flexible fee structure allowing for the department to charge different rates in each park, based on the demand for usage in that park.  Seth indicated support for both proposals.  His full testimony is available by clicking here.
