"The Oregon Heritage Conference brings together people who love and work with Oregon's heritage," the commission's website says.

By bringing everyone together in one place, we can begin to realize that our work in heritage is all interconnected, that we have similar problems, and, together, can create better solutions. The Heritage Conference will offer workshops, tours, and breakout sessions about the intersection of heritage recreation including heritage and bikeways, historic landscapes, heritage recreation, interpreting local recreation, and integrating heritage into local culture. There will also be tours of nearby historic trails and Thompson’s Mills State Heritage Area.
