About this item
From the crest of the High Cascades eastward to the High Desert, the Deschutes National Forest is one of America’s great national treasures. Timber, water, and forage were plentiful in Central Oregon and provided the building blocks for the region. Today, the national forest’s scenery and year-round outdoor recreational resources play major roles in sustaining a vibrant and diverse modern economy and a unique way of life. Since 1905, these resources have been administered by the US Forest Service, fulfilling its mission to pursue “the greatest good of the greatest number in the long run,” as decreed by forester Gifford Pinchot when he led the fledgling agency.
