Oregon is looking for the right person to lead a new division tasked with improving outdoor recreation in the Beaver State. 

The Office of Outdoor Recreation, a unit created by the Oregon legislature and signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown this summer, will begin to take shape with the hiring of its director. 

The post includes leadership of a small team within the Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation and pays between $70,000 to $97,000 per year. 

Creation of the office was pushed by outdoor recreation businesses and nonprofits in Oregon. The legislation was sponsored by Rep. Mark Johnson, R-Hood River.
