As wildfires burn across Oregon and Washington, our hearts are with you, our Columbia Land Trust community. First and foremost, we hope this eNews finds you safe. Feelings of grief and helplessness are natural in times like this, but we take heart in knowing that the Northwest's lands are resilient and so are its people.

Wild Splendor 2020

Join us virtually on Thursday, October 1st, 6:00 pm, for our annual gala and fundraiser

Our work teaches us that nature can thrive despite adversity. Join us for this year’s Wild Splendor as we celebrate the resilience of the land, water, wildlife, and people of the Pacific Northwest. While we can't gather together in person this year, we can still raise a glass from home to celebrate the conservation successes from the year while also raising critical support for the work ahead. Register today and watch the trailer for our new short film, The Witness Tree, premiering at Wild Splendor.
