2018 Annual Report
Because of you…
Because of you, 2018 was a remarkable year for conservation in western Oregon. Thanks to your support:
- We continued the large scale restoration at 1,100-acre Green Island, planting more than 260,000 trees and shrubs near the confluence of the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers.
- At Finn Rock Reach, we continued to update infrastructure and plan for the future of the boat landing. Here, the community came together to restore habitat, maintain walking paths, and care for the public access site. Contributors included the Friends of Finn Rock who gave more than 750 hours of their time through volunteerism and the more than 400 donors who gave to the McKenzie Homewaters Campaign.
- We invited thousands of people out to experience the incredible places of western Oregon.
- Our community grew through volunteerism, with more than 450 volunteers contributing over 6,250 hours of their time to the lands and rivers they cherish.
All this is only possible because of the people like you who care enough to give time and money and invite friends, family, and neighbors 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.

Declining financial markets led to $407,726 of unrealized investment losses for the year. Because we hold our investments long-term for the purpose of caring for conserved lands, we expect to recover this in the future years. The losses have been excluded from these charts.AR_2018_Web-1
