The Oregon Heritage Tradition designation recognizes those events more than 50 years old that represent what it means to be an Oregonian. If you are looking for something to do this summer, you might consider checking out a Heritage Tradition. Here is a list of Heritage Traditions happening in July:

4th of July Bend Pet Parade<https://www.bendparksandrec.org/activities/4th-of-july-festival/> - July 4
Bohemia Mining Days<https://bohemiaminingdays.org/> - July 19-21
Pacific City Dory Days<https://theoregoncoast.info/PacificCity/DoryDays.html> - July 20-22

To see a list of all Oregon Heritage Traditions or to learn more about how to designate an event, visit www.oregonheritage.org<http://www.oregonheritage.org>.


Temperature, humidity, and light can all be a threat to heritage collections if they are not monitored and regulated. Tools like dataloggers and light meters can help those managing heritage collections get an idea of the conditions where collections are stored or exhibited. Data collected can help you prioritize decisions with collections and that data can also support grant applications for improving the environment of the collection area.

You can now borrow dataloggers (for monitoring humidity and temperature), light meters, and Past Perfect Software training sets through Oregon Heritage MentorCorps for FREE!

Check out the list of MentorCorps Partner organizations below and directly contact the Partner in your region to get information on borrowing equipment.

Each fall, the Oregon Historic Trails Fund awards grants to support projects that interpret, preserve or maintain Oregon's trail-related resources. Grants may also be awarded for marketing, education, advocacy and research relating to historic trails.

The Oregon Historic Trails Fund supports interpretive, educational, and economic projects that preserve and protect the cultural and natural resources of Oregon's historic trails. An advisory committee made up of persons who are knowledgeable about Oregon's historic trails and cultural resources reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the OCF board of directors. Approximately $40,000 may be available in one or more grants each year. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions in November. Applications are accepted beginning July 10, 2018, through the deadline of 5 pm on August 31, 2018.

New for 2018: Applications are accepted through MyOCF, our online application system. Please see the "Application Process" tab for more information.
