Interpretive Signs at Klickitat Haul Road

From Stories to Signs 

Columbia Land Trust installs interpretive signs along the lower Klickitat Haul Road that celebrate the iconic watershed

One of the longest undammed rivers in Washington state, the Klickitat River, supports thriving forests, woodlands, and grasslands, and hundreds of wildlife species including salmon and steelhead. It offers important opportunities in forestry, ranching, and recreation, and is rich in history and culture of the Klickitat people.  This fall, Columbia Land Trust installed interpretive signs along the lower 
Klickitat Haul Road that celebrates the watershed and our nearly twenty-year effort to restore the river’s access to 
eight miles of its historic floodplain in partnership with the Yakama Nation. Read more!

2020 Winter Fieldbook Cover

Our 2020 Winter Fieldbook

Forestry, climate action, and building relationships with a focus on equity: the 2020 Winter Fieldbook is out now!

In this issue of Fieldbook, we explore how Columbia Land Trust is managing forestland for the realities of climate change and learn about the Green Workforce and how we are building relationships focused on equity. We dive into the newly-formed Oregon Agricultural Trust and how it aims to ensure a farming future across the state. We also hear from you on how nature has inspired you and how you've reflected with nature over the last several months. Explore the issue!

Give the Gift of Conservation

This giving season, restore and protect nature in the places you care about most

As we enter this season of giving, you can make a difference for the people and the wildlife of the Northwest by making a gift to Columbia Land Trust. You are powerful. You can tear down dams, conserve carbon-storing forests, and help salmon return home. You put the spruce seedlings in our hands before we plant them. You bring new places and natural treasures into our care, adding an average of four acres of newly protected lands every day.

Your gift today helps us continue to accomplish meaningful and lasting conservation in the Pacific Northwest.

Make a Gift Today

During this time of physical distancing, show us the nature and wildlife you're observing close to home by tagging #FearlessNature to your social media posts!

Mountain Beaver by Northwest Wildlife Online

Did You Know?

Mountain beavers are primitive, often destructive, and love living in the damp Northwest. These elusive mammals are roughly 12 inches long and resemble a large, overgrown hamster or tailless muskrat. They love damp ravines in urban areas and moist forests in Oregon and Washington. The mountain beaver may seem like a mythical creature to some, but there are thousands of them roaming around in western Washington. So be sure to keep an eye out! Learn more.
