State law established the seven-member Commission to maintain a listing of all historic cemeteries and gravesites in Oregon; promote public education on the significance of historic cemeteries; and help obtain financial and technical assistance for restoring, improving and maintaining their appearances.

The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council will hold its spring meeting in Redmond at 8 a.m. Sunday, April 24.

The meeting will be in the Conference Room at the Super 8 Motel at 3629 SW 21st PL, Redmond.   The motel's telephone number:  541 548 8881

In 1998, the Governor established OHTAC to oversee and provide advice on Oregon's 16 historic trails. The Council is made up of nine governor-appointed volunteer-citizens working together to advise the Governor and to locate, preserve and encourage the use of these historic trails by Oregonians and visitors to our state. The Council meets three times a year to explore at least one of the designated historic trails. Guided by local residents and/or public agency experts, the Council members evaluate and record trail conditions and discuss opportunities for the marking, interpretation and protection of the trails.
