Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton is taking a tour today of Monaco Coach Corp.’s manufacturing facilities at its headquarters in Coburg, Ore.
According to a press release, the Secretary will tour the plant and speak to Monaco employees about the “Take Pride in America” program and its initiative to generate stewardship of the nation’s 800 million acres of public recreational lands by volunteers.
