ARCHITECT'S DRAWING OF FIRST OF FOREST BUILDINGS
AS GROUND is being leveled off here for the coming administrative
headquarters of the Heppner district of the Umatilla National forest,
vision may be had of the finished project from this architect's drawing
of the first of the proposed buildings, a combination warehouse and
storehouse. The picture is reproduced here through courtesy of the Pen
dleton East Oregonian.
WPA labor has been employed in preparing the site, donated by city
and county, and F. F. Wehmeyer, local ranger, announces that CCC
workers will be on the job next month to assist in the work of con
struction. Other buildings planned for the site are an office, gas and oil station,
equipment building and residence for the administrative assistant. The
completed project will be bordered by large trees, and general land
scaping beauty will enhance the appearance of the upper Main street
district where the site is located.
WHY FOREST ADMINISTRATION IS IMPORTANT
THESE views were taken within the Heppner district of the Umatilla
National forest. Reproduced here through the courtesy of Pendleton
East Oregonian, they give something of the answer to the question of
"Why an administrative headquarters at Heppner?" To the left is shown
F. F. Wehmeyer, ranger in charge, standing beside one of the many large
ponderosa pine trees now being largely sought by milling interests. The
other views picture livestock in the mountain setting of summer range.
The forest service must interest itself in protecting these resources and
seeing that they are administered in the general public welfare. Conser
vation and reforestation are words whose meaning become clearer when
such sights are viewed; and it is easier to understand why the mountain
area contains the county's most valuable resources.
