COLT’s weekly land trust news

December 7th, 2015

Monday greetings everyone,

Not sure about the rest of y’all, but us Portlanders got a bit of rain today.

First of all, Kelley and I would like to thank the good team at the McKenzie River Trust for hosting an intimate, happy gathering of supporters last Thursday in Eugene to help introduce COLT. Held at the Wildcraft CiderHouse, this was a great way for COLT to connect with people supportive of and familiar with land trusts. This type of event is very helpful as COLT expands our network of individual donors. Thanks MRT!

Speaking of generous donors: you too can help support Oregon land conservation with a year-end gift to COLT! We all know that Oregon’s land trusts bring people together to make commitments that change communities. By donating to COLT, you are ensuring that your money stays in Oregon to help ALL Oregon land trusts to secure our iconic landscapes – rich in history, natural resources, breathtaking views and recreational opportunities – for future generations. Please consider donating to help us in our collective work. Thank you!

Ok, on to this week’s news and more.

Until next week,


Upcoming grants, deadlines, and events
