It’s our bread and butter—
From coastal estuaries to the upper reaches of the Cascade, our coalition members restore watersheds for migrating salmon and steelhead. Land trusts in the Willamette Valley are helping to protect and restore the remaining 1% of native oak prairie habitat. In Southern Oregon, the State’s oldest land trust is safeguarding hundreds of acres of the rare plant species in the Siskiyou mountains, an area of diversity likened to the Galapagos islands. Travel east and you’ll find land trusts working with ranch owners to protect the last remaining high-elevation native prairies, or securing connected habitat for threatened birds like the sage grouse.
Our members work in service to Oregon’s land—and the benefits it provides all of us. Conservation strategies across the state are diverse, from restoring and connecting lands to preventing the decline of threatened species. And our coalition members work in partnership with landowners, local, state, federal and tribal governments and community partners to save and steward special places.
