John Day River

John Day River, Oregon.

Camera crews from Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) have used drones to film presentations in wilderness areas and on wild rivers including the John Day River.  


Recently I asked the Director of the Prineville BLM to notify OPB that the use of drones on certain sections of the John Day river was not allowed.


I contacted Dennis Teitzel, Vale BLM District Manager on October 25, 2017.  A response was promised by early December.  At this point, I am still waiting.
