OTE - Oregon Travel Experience

*NEW* Heritage Tree Hero of the Year Award

Posted on: November 5th, 2020 in Heritage Tree Details, News & Press |


The Oregon Heritage Tree Committee has created a brand new award! The Heritage Tree Hero award recognizes individuals and groups that view Oregon’s history from the perspective of the trees that witness/are witnessing it. Tell us about an inspirational individual or organization that is engaging communities through education about the importance of trees and raising awareness about Oregon’s history told through trees and forests. We encourage nominations that tell the stories of historically under-represented communities whose contributions are an integral part of Oregon’s history.

The deadline for submitting nominations is National Arbor Day (April 30th). Any applications received after the deadline will be kept on file and considered for the next year’s award. Emailed nominations are preferred.
