Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts

Portland, OR

The Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts serves and strengthens the land trust community in Oregon through building connections and advancing policies that help protect the natural world—our water, wildlife, and open spaces.

The “On Becoming Human Again” project trains land trusts in the Pacific Northwest to work with, support, and share land stewardship with local Native communities. The extensive two-year training program will teach the history, culture, and knowledge of these communities, with the goals of transforming relationships, deepening non-Native understanding of nature, and ultimately opening lands to tribes for stewardship, subsistence, and cultural use.
