Celebrating Our History While Looking Forward

It’s hard to believe, but the Oregon program of The Nature Conservancy has been around for just over five decades, working side by side with many friends and partners. Hundreds of trustees, thousands of volunteers and tens of thousands of members have made our conservation success possible.

We are profoundly thankful for this support. Because of it, Oregon has a legacy of protected places that are truly monumental.

We invite you to join us on a journey through time. In the features below, you will see incredible places, shared memories and hear from people who have helped shape The Nature Conservancy’s first 50 years in Oregon. With a multitude of great projects and dedicated people to choose from, it wasn’t easy to pick a few. We won’t cover everything, but we promise a fun and inspiring ride.
