Timberline Lodge Awarded a 2011 Oregon Heritage Excellence Award

Government Camp, OR - RLK and Company, operators of Timberline Lodge
, together with the Mt. Hood National Forest and the Friends of Timberline, a non-profit group dedicated to the preservation of Timberline Lodge, have been selected to win a 2011 Oregon Heritage Excellence Award. The Heritage Excellence Awards recognize individuals, businesses, and organizations for outstanding efforts on behalf of Oregon heritage. In addition, they honor those people and organizations that have made the most of available resources in these efforts.

The three-way partnership is being specifically recognized for its long-term collaborative stewardship of Timberline Lodge, a National Historic Landmark, and for defining public/private partnerships at their best. The award’s nominating committee was particularly impressed with the “Timberline Compact,”
a cooperative action plan and statement of principles that recognizes the joint interest that the three organizations share in maintaining the viability of Timberline Lodge and in meeting their mutual obligations to the American people, as stewards of Mt. Hood and historic Timberline Lodge.
