Madras, Oregon — A collaborative group of private citizens, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation, and other groups are working with the Forest Service to improve wildlife habitat on the west side of the Crooked River National Grassland.

Referred to as the “Westside Stewardship Project”, the group has scheduled its third meeting at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, March 28.  The meeting will be held at the Jefferson County Fire Hall, 765 S.E. Adams Drive in Madras. This meeting is open to the public and will include a field trip, ending at approximately 3:30 p.m. Bring a sack lunch and dress for moderate walking over uneven terrain. Please RSVP if transportation to the field trip is needed.

The Crooked River National Grassland is the largest of three national grasslands west of the Rockies and the only one located in the state of Oregon. For more information, contact Anne Roberts, project lead, by phone at (541) 416-6447 or (541) 475-9272, or by
