2017 Annual Report
Because of you…
Because of you, 2017 was a remarkable year for conservation in western Oregon. Thanks to your support:
- We partnered with Cerro Gordo Land Conservancy to permanently protect 500 acres of hillside prairie and forest above Dorena Lake.
- We continued the large scale restoration at 1,100-acre Green Island, removing more barriers to the river’s ability to move into its floodplain at the confluence of the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers.
- We paid off the loan for 278-acre Finn Rock Reach and moved forward with habitat restoration, trails, and boat landing enhancements, thanks to large and small contributions to the McKenzie Homewaters Campaign by more than 400 donors.
- We invited thousands of people out to experience the incredible places of western Oregon.
All this is only possible because of the people like you who cared enough to give time and money, and invite friends, family and neighbors to join us to work on behalf of the places you cherish. These successes are your successes.
We apologize for any oversight we may have made in recognizing support. Please call our office, and we will gladly update our records. Thank you.
