State of the Lands 2019 celebration a success!

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us last week—nearly 120 folks from around the corner and around Oregon. We came together at KEEN in Portland to celebrate the release of our new 2019 State of the Lands report, featuring stories from Deschutes Land Trust, Forest Park Conservancy, Wallowa Land Trust and more.

Read these inspiring stories!

Oregon’s Poet Laureate, Kim Stafford, was our guest speaker and shared a series of poems inspired by nature, including one he crafted specifically for the event! What an honor. We’ll be sharing that soon.
