RANCHERS RALLY TO STATE THEIR POINT OF VIEW Ranchers from around Oregon will attend the event beginning at the 6:30 PM social hour at the Central Oregon Environmental Center. BUT FIRST, they will meet at the El Caporal Restaurant in Bend at 5:00 PM. Ranchers from across Oregon will gather at the El Caporal Restaurant in Bend at 5:00 PM Thursday to meet and organize their visit to the Central Oregon Environmental Center, about two blocks away. The El Caporal Restaurant is at the South East Corner of Franklin and Bond in Bend. Going South on 97, you should plan to turn right on Franklin. Going North, you would turn left. It is important for as many ranchers as possible to come to Bend Thursday afternoon to explain to urban and rural attendees as well as the press why grazing is good for the environment and dispel the misinformation spread by George Wuerthner’s book.
