Step Outside! The 2021 Conservation Report Is Here

Take a look at the work you help make possible, and our ambitious goals as Columbia Land Trust looks ahead.

Columbia Land Trust envisions a future where natural areas and our lives intertwine and where people know, love, and respect nature's beauty and importance in a reciprocal way. Human communities, including neighborhoods, businesses, farms, ranches, and working forests, complement the natural world, providing all people with well-being and an unrivaled quality of life. We all depend on each other. The health of every part is required for the health of the whole. Columbia Land Trust is advancing a 25-year Conservation Agenda to support our rivers, forests, grasslands, and the creatures that depend on them. Read the full report here.
