The first annual Oregon Walk the Land Day
Oregon land trusts are conserving special places...something to celebrate!
This year's inaugural Oregon Walk the Land Day on Saturday June 24th brings Oregonians of all walks of life together with nearly a dozen land trusts for hikes, tours, and educational opportunities around lands that are protected forever.
The 19 land trusts that make up the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts have collectively conserved over 345,000 acres of habitat, farms, forests, and breathtaking open space. With quiet diligence, land trusts work with willing landowners to ensure that what makes Oregon so special remains so for future generations.
While each and every protected acre benefits our communities in many ways, it is often only through events like tours and hikes that people can directly experience and learn about these special places. This is what Oregon Walk the Land Day is all about: celebrating people connecting with lands conserved by land trusts throughout Oregon.
So find an event, bring a friend, and enjoy these outstanding places. Oh, and tell us about it on social media! Use the hashtag #OregonWalktheLand with your photos, videos, and commentary.
