The Deschutes National Forest staff is almost ready to move into a brand new home. Spokesperson Jeanne Nelson Dean says the new building on Deschutes Market Road will have multiple uses: "We will have lots of our regular information there. And we really want to make that building a connection to the community, and that people will feel welcome there. We hope that it will be a facility that people will come into and we want to make connections to the schools there and a connection to the community in general." Nelson Dean says this is the first -ever home for the Deschutes National Forest, and it will also house the Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Service. And, over the next week or so, road crews will be widening the roads at Deschutes Market near Butler Market as part of the building plan, so watch for flaggers.
