Resilience Is In Our Nature

Enjoy our new film, a visual story of some of the communities in Oregon we see, work within, and learn from.

Released for Get Outdoors Day Oregon, our new film, Resilience Is In Our Nature, shares a visual story of some of the communities we see, work within, and learn from throughout the state of Oregon. Whether it’s putting a mask on and getting outside for a walk, learning how to thrive and grow while staying at home during a quarantine, maintaining balance physically and mentally in local green spaces, or keeping a small business afloat by staying open and serving food to the public—this is the fabric of what makes our neighborhoods, our cities, and our region a special place to live. This is our community. We hope to inspire you with this work. Watch the full film and read an accompanying message from Community Engagement Manager Dez Ramirez.

Did You Know?

Dunn's salamanders are lungless amphibians native to Southwest Washington. That's right, these critters don't have lungs and breathe through their skin. You can find these Dunn's salamanders under rocks in wet shaded areas along the edges of streams in forests. Keep an eye out! Learn more.
