He toured the Deschtues National Forest off of Skyliners Road on Monday.

 

The area is slated to undergo significant thnning over the next four years.

 

Deschutes National Forest Supervisor John Allen says the "West Bend Project" was the focus of the tour.

 

"It was primarily for the senator to hear from collaborative members about the agreement we've reached to create a healthy forest and also help to prevent wildfires and high risk in our neighborhoods and communities."

 

The West Bend Project started a year and a half ago, funds thinning of national forest land to help prevent the catastrophic wildfires we've been seeing in recent years.
