Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Tom and Gayle (both) dedicate their time to making their community better. They listen to learn, they show up, and they volunteer to take on tasks, projects, and leadership roles. They serve as a bridge between their community and the forest management agencies/forest collaborative in Prineville for the Ochoco National Forest. They’re also great relationship builders! They want to get to know you, are open minded, and very warm and welcoming to everyone.
