The resources listed in this site provide the basic information of this area and all of the wonderful features that make up Harney County.

Harney County has an outstanding record of community involvement in economic development activities.  Three groups of citizens have been continuously active in creative development and support of Harney County Court efforts for economic development since 1989.

These community activists include:
