Born and raised in Wallowa County, Doug grew up hunting and fishing the valleys and mountains and working at the Bates Mill and his family were some of the first to settle in the valley. He left to study at Oregon State University and got his degree in Construction Management. He used these skills to start and manage several companies involved with logging, construction, and ranching. He was a founding member of Wallowa Resources, and catalyzed our watershed restoration program with the innovative Wallowa River Restoration project. Doug enjoys using and exploring the local area.
