Get Outdoors Day is a free event thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and members. If you believe in living rivers and enjoy the event, please consider becoming a McKenzie River Trust member today!

Since 1989, the McKenzie River Trust has helped people protect and care for the lands and rivers they cherish in western Oregon. Annual gifts from people like you provide the critical support we need to work with local landowners on new projects, offer education and outreach opportunities on our protected lands, and provide matching dollars for the large grants that help fund many of our conservation projects. A gift of any size qualifies you as a member.
