Thank Senator Merkley for re-introducing Sutton Mountain Wilderness legislation

In 2019, Senator Merkley introduced legislation to designate the 58,000-acre Sutton Mountain Wilderness and convey nearly 2,000 acres to the city of Mitchell, Oregon to help the community take advantage of the new wilderness area for local economic development.

Please take a moment now to thank the senator and encourage him to move this legislation through Congress.

“I find enjoyment in the peaceful wide open spaces, geology, and rich history of Oregon’s high desert,” says Mary. Reflecting on volunteering, she continues, “If you have the ability and desire, it’s important to do something to contribute. It doesn’t have to be big, because every little bit helps.”
