Hooting for Flammulated Owls

Join our staff on a night-time audio survey in search of the elusive, and adorable, flammulated owl.

As the warm sun set over Klickitat Canyon in the East Cascades, Natural Area Manager Lindsay Cornelius, Stewardship Assistant Sanoe Keliinoi, and Conservation Lead Nate Ulrich prepared to go to work. The crew packed audio equipment, datasheets, and warm clothing into their bags, opened up their map, and set out into the dark forest. Nighttime is the right time to hoot for flammies! Learn what our staff found and experienced during the survey.

2020 Camping Resources

A short guide to camping around the Northwest this summer.

Camping is a great way to spend quality time with friends and family while experiencing the great outdoors up close. Camping can also be a great activity and a resource for self-reflection, stress relief, and connecting with nature. As we continue to navigate a global pandemic, we want to support you engaging in outdoor summer fun as safely and responsibly as possible. We've assembled a short camping guide to help you embark on summer camping trips while also staying safe and up-to-date with public health guidelines. Learn more.

You Make the Difference

Your gift today can restore forests critical for wildlife habitat. 

Until the late 1800s, upland forests like ours along the North Nemah River provided critical habitat, providing benefits to threatened species, including Olympia oysters and marbled murrelet. These upland forests were then cut and replanted, again and again. The goal of our work is to restore conserved lands to a more natural state for the health of the region’s rivers and forests. A place where water runs cool and clear for salmon. A place where wildlife has room to roam. A place integral to the Northwest. Join Columbia Land Trust and make a gift today to restore critical wildlife habitat for generations to come! 

The Collins Foundation is matching 100% of gifts from new donors and 100% of increased giving from current donors up to $40,000. Make a gift today and double the impact of your giving!
