Access to events and facilities
Media credentials are not required for access to District events and facilities; however, we appreciate a heads up in advance so we can facilitate access and interview requests. Please contact us at (541) 389-7275 as soon as you get a story assignment and we’ll do our best to accommodate even last-minute requests.
Requests for District images and rights to use should be directed to the Marketing Department:
Commercial Film Permits
