LA GRANDE, Ore.—Manulife (formerly Hancock) properties in NE Oregon reopened to overnight camping effective 12:01 am, Friday, Sept. 30.
Fire danger has eased thanks to showers and rain in northeast Oregon.
The change applies to Manulife properties in the Shamrock, Whiskey Cr, Noregaard, Little Catherine Cr, Meacham travel management areas, and any other Manulife properties enrolled in the A&H program in northeast Oregon. A reminder that motorized vehicles are only allowed on designated roads outside of TMAs.
