Forest Service Moving to the Umatilla Rez

May 2012, CUJ

CTUIR Board of Trustees Chairman Les Minthorn and Umatilla Forest Supervisor Kevin Martin cut the ribbon April 30 at the new Forest Service office building located on the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

The CTUIR completed construction and the Forest Service is now installing furniture in the 15,000 square foot structure. Forest Service employees, stationed in their Pendleton office for about 40 years, will begin moving May 18 and open to the public on May 21.
