Oregon Wildlife Foundation Grant

NRD has been actively working to restore approximately 100 acres of meadows for wildlife habitat on the Reservation. In 2019, CTGR received a $10,000 grant from the Oregon Wildlife Foundation to purchase equipment to monitor the meadows on the Reservation. In 2020 and 2021, 56 remote cameras purchased with this grant were placed throughout the Reservation to evaluate the wildlife use of the meadows. Information from this effort will help guide future planning and management of these areas.


Thank you to the Oregon Wildlife Foundation for their financial support of this monitoring effort!

The Natural Resources Department serves the Grand Ronde Tribal membership through responsible stewardship of all natural resources important to the cultural identity, self-sufficiency, and sovereignty of current and future generations.
