Governor Kate Brown and First Gentleman, Dan Little, visited Whychus Canyon Preserve with Deschutes Land Trust, Latino Outdoors and Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts.
Hi. We’re the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts. You can call us COLT.
We represent more than 25 nonprofits—all advocating for our natural world. We unite conservation organizations in Oregon and raise a collective voice for positive change.
We also stuff our packs with extra snacks and hats in case you need it, stand up on a chair if there’s no podium and play a mean game of ping pong. Nicely, of course.
We serve and strengthen the land trust community in Oregon.
We do that by building connections and advancing policies that help protect our natural world—our water, wildlife and open space—for all people, forever.
What’s a land trust? And where? A land trust is a nonprofit that works with individuals and partners to conserve land.
There are more than 1,700 land trusts across the country and more than 25 in Oregon—all working to protect special places and local ways of life for generations to come. These organizations are deeply rooted in local communities and protect places like waterways, wildlife habitat, parks, community gardens, working farms and more.
