If you look at many of the major preservation projects during the past 10 years in Corvallis, one name keeps popping up: B.A. Beierle. Since she began monitoring Corvallis and Benton County public bodies with authority over historic resources more than 13 years, Beierle has taken on many important projects.

A new Oregon Heritage Exchange blog<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2016/06/20/benton-county-preservation-projects-boosted-by-b-a-beierles-work/> post profiles her work.


The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council will hold its summer meeting in Hermiston at 8 a.m. June 26.

The meeting will be in the Conference Room at the Knights Inn at 425 N. First St., Hermiston.

This meeting is free and open to the public and there is no charge for attending. OHTAC will be discussing old business including the Barlow Trail multimedia grant project, wind farm activity and more.

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 16 designated historic trails. Guided by local residents and public agency experts, the council members evaluate and record trail conditions and discuss opportunities for the marking, interpretation and protection of the trails. For information visit the OTHAC webpage<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/pages/ohtac.aspx> or contact Loren Irving, 541-480-4167.


Nominations are being accepted by Restore Oregon for the 2016 DeMuro Awards.  Named after developer and preservationist Art DeMuro, the award honors outstanding examples of preservation and adaptive reuse of historic homes and buildings, and compatible new development in historic districts.

Awards will be presented in several categories for preservation projects completed within the last five years.  Judges look for exceptional design, creative problem-solving, quality craftsmanship, and community impact.  Nomination forms<http://restoreoregon.org/demuro-award/> are due Aug. 5.
