Illinois Valley Recreation Opportunity Collaborative (IVROC)
Originally formed in the late 90’s when funding for recreation development was strong, this group brings all the relevant state and federal agencies together with local outdoor recreation stakeholders to share project planning and resources to maintain and develop recreational infrastructure and programs. One example of this multi-agency partnership was to build and operate the Visitor Center. After a few years of relative inactivity, the Collaborative has been reinvigorated by the IV 20/20 Plan for a number of new projects. Partners include US Forest Service, National Park Service, BLM, Oregon State Parks, KS Wild, and other local nonprofit organizations.
