Manulife (formerly Hancock) properties in NE Oregon reopen to day use Thursday, Sept. 15

September 13, 2022

LA GRANDE, Ore.—Manulife (formerly Hancock) properties in NE Oregon will reopen to day use this Thursday, Sept. 15. Day use hours are 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Fire danger has eased slightly but remains high. Fire restrictions remain in effect, including the following restrictions: Open fires and non-industrial use of chainsaws is prohibited and hunters are required to possess firefighting equipment (one shovel and one gallon of water or one 2.5 pound or larger fire extinguisher) when traveling on roads (except for highways or county roads).

Manulife lands in northeast Oregon had closed in early August due to extreme fire danger. 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. Reminder that motorized vehicles are only allowed on designated roads outside of TMAs.

For other information on recreation on Manulife lands in northeast Oregon call their hotline at (541) 962-2184.
