The Oregon Land Justice Project’s new Indigenous Land Relationship Fund is now open! This small grant program was created by land trusts in Oregon to directly support Indigenous people in reclaiming and reconnecting to culture, traditional landscapes, and First Foods.
In August, land trust staff and board members from across the state traveled to Warm Springs to build relationships and learn how we can show up for their community.
Hi. We’re the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts. You can call us COLT.
We represent more than 30 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.
