Our vision is clean, free flowing rivers with plentiful salmon runs. We see vibrant farms and forests that provide livelihoods and habitats. From the Cascades Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, we envision a future in which conservation lands are at the core of community efforts to sustain clean water, abundant fish and wildlife, and diverse natural resource economies in Western Oregon.
In the thirty years since our founding, McKenzie River Trust has broadened our reach of protected lands beyond the McKenzie Watershed. We own and manage land as far as the Oregon Coast and southward into Douglas county. Landowners seeking ways to preserve their properties for generations to come can work with us to keep it pristine. Community members can volunteer with us to restore native species and natural floodplains. Those who wish to support our efforts financially are welcome to make gifts toward our conservation work.
