Leading the Way to Community Supported Conservation

2020 has been a year of challenges; some personal, some professional. Not that I need to tell you that; we’re living it together! Despite everything that’s happened, the commitment to wildlife conservation in Oregon remains strong.

We see it in the donations we receive, participation in our digital programming, and engagement with and through our social channels. For that, we say thank you! Your support and that of others like you is what keeps us energized and moving forward. This year has also brought many positive changes to our work at the Foundation; we’ve grown our digital footprint, implemented projects, developed new partnerships, and added talented people to an already impressive group of board and staff members. With how this year began, who’d have thought the next line in this letter would include the word “highlights”.
