Founded in 1974, Oregon Wild's mission is to aggressively protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters as an enduring legacy.
Oregon Wild has been instrumental in securing permanent legislative protection for some of Oregon’s most precious landscapes, including nearly 1.5 million acres of Wilderness, 95,000 acres of Bull Run/Little Sandy forests (protected to provide municipal water supplies) and almost 1,700 miles of Wild and Scenic Rivers.
Leading the national grassroots charge for conservation of roadless areas in our national forests, Oregon Wild helped secure administrative protections for over 58 million acres of spectacular roadless areas across the country.
Our Programs & People
Our wilderness, old-growth forest and Klamath Basin programs protect pristine drinking water, unparalleled recreation opportunities, and fish and wildlife habitat across Oregon.
Through the power of nearly 5,000 members, and over 2,500 e-mail activists and volunteers, Oregon Wild works to maintain environmental laws, while building broad community support for our campaigns. With a staff of fifteen, including regional coordinators who live and work in each corner of Oregon, Oregon Wild’s strength is its active grassroots citizen network.
Oregon Wild is an educational, scientific and charitable organization dependent upon private donations and citizen support. Memberships and contributions are tax-deductible.
