To protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters as an enduring legacy for future generations.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2016, Oregon Wild built grassroots support aimed at moving more than 500,000 acres of wildlands in and around Crater Lake National Park closer to permanent wilderness protection. It has also been a leading advocate for imperiled native wildlife species such as sea otters, wolverine and gray wolves.
“If you like to hike, camp, fish or ski in unspoiled places on Mount Hood and in the Columbia Gorge, support Oregon Wild. Their hard work to protect our wildlands keeps Oregon a special place to live, work and play.” —William Sullivan, Oregon hiking guidebooks author
