Mission

The Forest Park Conservancy is a community-supported organization whose mission is to protect and restore the ecological health of Forest Park, maintain and enhance the park’s extensive trails network, promote equitable access, and inspire diverse community appreciation and stewardship of this iconic urban forest for generations to come.

Bottom Line for Portland

Forest Park Conservancy relies on community support to ensure our work continues to have a significant impact on multiple communities in the Portland-Metro area. At 5,200 acres, Forest Park accounts for more than half of the natural space in Portland, and plays a significant role in helping local communities withstand, adapt to, and recover from the increasing effects of climate change. Forest Park also provides recreational opportunities to approximately 700,000 visitors a year as well as ecosystem services that are critical to increasing the resiliency of local communities, including, clean air and water, carbon sequestration and lower summer temperatures.

Quote

“Forest Park is my happy place! I find so much comfort and peace on the trails; especially during the pandemic I logged more miles than ever in the park. Donating to FPC is a no-brainer for me; without Forest Park I don't know how I would have made it through some of the hardest times in my life.” – Allison, FPC donor

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

FPC is dedicated to connecting underserved groups such as BIPOC individuals and the LGBT+ community to natural spaces like Forest Park as well as connecting people to opportunities in the green jobs field. To that end, FPC leads the Green Jobs Training and Internship Program in partnership with The Blueprint Foundation, Wisdom of the Elders, Ecotrust, Columbia Land Trust, and West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District. In collaboration with Love is King, we are actively working towards building a culture in Forest Park where individuals can be their authentic selves in their interactions and experiences with nature to ultimately strengthen and diversify the community of stewards dedicated to caring for and protecting Forest Park and our public lands.
