Wild Salmon Center


To conserve healthy wild salmon rivers for the benefit of wildlife, communities and economies. Wild Salmon Center is working to stop clearcutting of older-growth trees in the Tillamook and Clatsop state forests, to ensure their watersheds continue to provide clean water, wildlife habitat and recreation like fishing, hiking, camping and biking.   

Bottom Line for Portland

Last year, WSC helped lead the effort to double the streamside buffers that protect salmon-bearing rivers in Oregon’s private forestlands. As a result, many forested salmon streams will have more shade and colder, cleaner water—vital to both salmon and local communities.

“We were thrilled to partner with WSC on their conservation work in Oregon’s North Coast Forests. Their approach not only encourages recreation as a means to protection, it works to protect Oregon’s healthy forests, wild fish and cold, clean rivers.” —Jared Kennedy, co-founder and COO, Outdoor Project
