Last spring on a ramble by the Supreme Court building a mysterious tree seemed a little remarkable. Was it a Cork Oak or some other tree that had a story attached to it? It did not look like any native tree from around here, and seemed like it might have been a gift or the legacy of some gardener. Its twisty branching and textured bark stood out.

Cherriots' Board meet last week and in the minutes from December 12th (in the meeting packet) was a note about what looks to be gearing up for a new project:
Marion County Environmental Services and CTC [Cherriots Trip Choice] created a collaborative survey to gauge the impact that residents from northeast Salem have on traveling.The survey had a total of 396 respondents who ranged in age from 18 to 65. The survey results provided staff with direction on how to develop a follow up outreach campaign in northeast Salem for the second and third quarters.

Salem Reporter also had a couple of notes on that Cherriots agenda.
