Founded in 1990, Columbia Land Trust conserves and cares for the vital lands, waters, and wildlife of the Columbia River region. The nonprofit has conserved more than 43,000 acres of land in two states and 14 counties along the Columbia River, from The Dalles, Oregon, to the Pacific Ocean. Columbia Land Trust has earned accreditation from the Land Trust Alliance, which recognizes land trusts that adhere to national standards for excellence, uphold public trust with rigorous ethical standards, and take steps to ensure that conservation efforts are permanent.
Columbia Land Trust recently launched its conservation agenda, which prioritizes vital lands across the five ecologically-distinct regions of the lower Columbia River. In addition to where we work, our agenda outlines our approach, blending sound science and strong relationships to connect people to nature and arrive at collaborative, equitable solutions.
