The Lomakatsi team met with representatives of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, National Congress of American Indians, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden’s Office, USDA Office of Tribal Relations, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Congressman Cliff Bentz’ Office, U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley’s Office, multiple departments of the U.S. Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management Fire & Aviation. We also caught up with Dr. Homer Wilkes, Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment, who we hosted in the Rogue Valley for the announcement of new Community Wildfire Defense Fund Grant funding for the state of Oregon a few weeks ago.
