Field Trip Diary: Center For Land Use Interpretation and the Bureau for Land Management

Matthew Coolidge from the Center for Land Use Interpretation was recently in town for a lecture as part of our Monday Night Lecture Series. The following day he organized a field trip for the SP MFA program to Willamette Stone State Park to visit the marker that commemorates the initial point for Oregon and Washington. We were met by a representative from the Bureau for Land Management that shared the history of the site with us, antique land surveying equipment and techniques, and taught us about the rectangular survey system.
