Public Awareness Representative News
This month ASLA thanks Robin Lee Gyorgyfalvy as she steps down from her role as the chapter Public Awareness Representative. She served in the post for three years and felt it was time for someone else to take the reins for a while. Robin has been instrumental in shaping the Understory events and subsequent ASLA public awareness campaigns. The new PA Rep is Rebecca Wahlstrom, who will now serve as the contact person for events, project openings, or awards galas that need promotion, as well as being the organizer for new PA campaigns.

Bend’s Byway Visitor Center
Feature article from LANDbytes, ASLA Oregon’s monthly newsletter.
“A long envisioned dream for a new Visitor Center at the entrance to the Deschutes National Forest is quickly becoming a reality. This new portal to public lands will be located on the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway west of Bend, Oregon, which is home to 80,000 people. The Byway is a magical pathway that flows through a volcanic landscape full of sparkling alpine lakes. Visitors can easily access many outdoor adventures such as sightseeing, biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, birdwatching, and wildlife viewing. Bend’s new Byway Visitor Center is scheduled to open its doors and outdoor interpretive features in time for the summer season of 2014.”
