Have you checked your local county or tribal Cultural Coalition for grants?

Several county and tribal Cultural Coalition grants are open for application so we thought we would encourage folks to look into the grants available through their Coalition.

What are these Cultural Coalitions?
Oregon's 45 county and tribal Cultural Coalitions are funded directly by the Oregon Cultural Trust and are unique to the state. Led by dedicated volunteers, each coalition prioritizes community cultural goals and annually distributes seed grants that address the needs of each county. Among these are Oregon's nine federally recognized tribes, whose cultural contributions are integral to the region's cultural vitality. Each coalition receives a base grant plus additional funds based on population.

For more information or to find the contact for your county or tribal Cultural Coalition, visit here<https://culturaltrust.org/about-us/coalitions/>.

Mitigation spotlight: Jackson County historic newspaper digitization

The Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), located within Oregon Heritage, a division of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, consults with agencies whose projects are subject to state and federal  historic preservation laws. When a project on federal land, or funded, licensed, or permitted by a federal agency, effects a historic property, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 requires that the agency take into consideration those effects. The resolution of any adverse effects is often the development of preservation-minded projects to "mitigate" the impact.

Recently, a project in Jackson County resulted in an adverse effect to the Hopkins Canal. The agreed upon mitigation between the Bureau of Reclamation, Rogue River Valley Irrigation District, and the Oregon SHPO resulted in the digitization of over 4,500 pages of historic newspapers from Jackson County. These pages have been made available to the public on the University of Oregon Library Historic Oregon Newspapers website: https://oregonnews.uoregon.edu/.

Restore Oregon's 2019 Heritage Barn Workshop, Sept. 14 in Bend

On Saturday, September 14, Restore Oregon will host their annual 2019 Heritage Barn Workshop where barn owners will learn practical solutions from experts on how to maintain, rehabilitate, and adapt old barns for today's needs. Attendees will learn about the history and construction of barns as well as maintenance, stabilization, funding opportunities, and preservation. The workshop will also highlight the crucial steps toward transitioning the family farm to future generations. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to experience live hand-hewing demonstrations by David Rogers, founder and operator of Logs & Timbers, LLC, who has over 40 years experience in log building restoration.

Heritage barns are an iconic symbol of Oregon's agricultural and rural heritage. With the rapid changes in farming and ranching, diminishing resources, and loss of skilled craftspeople with knowledge of barn preservation and restoration, there is a special urgency for preservationists to partner with the agricultural community. Restore Oregon, through its Heritage Barns Task Force formed in 2011, has made it a priority to bring together the state's most well-versed experts to share their experiences and skills. We are honored to offer this opportunity to support Oregon ranchers, farmers, barn owners, barn enthusiasts, and their allies in sharing their passion for our agricultural heritage and their ability to retain and enhance its usefulness into the future.

The annual Heritage Barn Workshop will be held in Bend at the Bend Park and Recreation District's historic Hollinshead Barn. Restore Oregon has partnered with the Deschutes County Historic Landmarks Commission to provide this exceptional educational opportunity. Space is limited, purchase your tickets today at www.retoreoregon.org<http://www.retoreoregon.org>.

Event Details:

When: Saturday, September 14 from 10 AM - 5:30 PM
Cost: $40 per ticket, includes snacks, lunch with choice of sandwich and side, and beverages
Location: Hollinshead Barn in Bend, Oregon, 1235 NE Jones Rd, Bend, OR 97701
