Did you know that Oregon Heritage Bulletins provide tips, ideas and
more to help preserve Oregon’s heritage?
For example, Bulletin 2: “How to Spread the News” describes helpful
ways to publicize heritage resources. Oregon’s historic structures,
museums, cemeteries, etc., benefit when the community and its leaders
know all the great things going on! 
When communities see activity happening with heritage resources they
become curious and might be compelled to help out. Anytime work is
happening at or with a heritage resource, it is news. Publicizing those
who support the effort encourages more businesses, organizations and 
individuals to participate.

on spreading the news about heritage resources, or to review and
