Everyone who visits or moves to Central Oregon knows it’s a special place. The natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities attract the adventurous and inspire the artistic.

A vibrant community has grown up in this region — diverse in background and outlook; entrepreneurial in spirit. That community has shown remarkable resilience in tough times.

The Nugget is celebrating the bounty of the region with a new magazine-format publication entitled “Spirit of Central Oregon.” In-depth stories will reveal adventures, volunteer service, artistic endeavors, culinary explorations and other aspects of the true spirit of life in Central Oregon.

The magazine will be inserted in The Nugget in mid-October, and distributed in locations across Central Oregon. It will also be distributed as a digital magazine.

For information on the publication contact Vicki Curlett at 541-549-9941.
