Our Mission:  The Applegate Valley Community Newsmagazine organization's goal is to provide the many communities of the Applegate Watershed with a communication vehicle, the Applegater, that will provide educational information, increase community capacity and enrich our lives. Through honest, constructive, relevant and entertaining reports on a wide variety of subjects and viewpoints, including our natural resources, historical and current events, and community news, we can work together to maintain the quality of life that drew us to the Applegate in the first place, and continue to make a difference in our Valley.
