NORTH COAST LAND CONSERVANCY
Preserving the Oregon Coast Forever Celebrating 30 years
CONNECTIV CONNECTIVITY FOREST. STREAM. OCEAN. THEY ARE AS CLOSELY CONNECTED AS YOUR OWN HEART AND LUNGS. OUR GOAL IS TO KEEP THEM THAT WAY. FOR 30 YEARS weâ€™ve been making connections across the coastal landscape, ensuring that the people, plants, and wildlife that call this place home can all thrive. And by we, I mean you. Your support is what makes it happen. Thank you for a stunning 30th year.

By any measure, 2016 was a banner year for conservation on the Oregon Coast. But just as the year was about to end, the NCLC board had the privilege of taking the first concrete step toward a goal we have been pursuing for a decade or more:

For years NCLC has offered monthly opportunities for volunteers to join us on the land and get their hands dirty. This year we ramped it up a notch with the debut of Weed Warrior Wednesdays. All summer Eric, our land steward, invited folks to tackle some serious stewardship one day a week on one of our properties, from ripping out blackberries (above) to collecting native seeds. By September he had a solid crew of regulars showing up. Year Two of W³ kicks off in May; contact Eric at landsteward@ NCLCtrust.org for details.
You have a fundraising event to plan. You have 2,600 envelopes to stuff and seal. You’ve invited 50 people to walk the Oregon Coast Trail with you and promised them snacks, guidance, and a good time. Who you gonna call? At NCLC, it’s the Outreach Committee. More than a mere committee, this group has become the staff’s goto every time we reach out to the community or invite the public onto our lands. Enthusiastic, hard-working, smart, and committed to the mission: A land trust couldn’t ask for better collaborators.

A passion for preserving the magic of the coast Sharon Stern is an avid walker; she’s done long-distance hikes all over the world, and she regularly heads out with TrailMix, a Portland hiking group. So when she read in the North Coast Land Conservancy newsletter about the first-ever CoastWalk Oregon planned for September 2016, her interest was piqued—until she realized she had a date conflict. No worries: she organized an alternative CoastWalk in August with TrailMix members, using NCLC’s guidance and support, and asked participants to thank NCLC with a donation. Sixteen TrailMixers took part in the three-day walk (and, from all reports, had a blast). And the group collectively contributed $2,850 to NCLC, bringing the total raised by CoastWalk Oregon 2016 to $26,834. Sharon lives in Portland and has a house in Cannon Beach, which served as base camp for the TrailMix CoastWalk. She’s been vacationing on Oregon’s north coast since she was a girl, and she and her husband, Steve Rallison, are among NCLC’s most generous donors. Many TrailMixers are supporters of the nonprofit Friends of the Gorge, Sharon says; CoastWalk was her way of introducing her hiking friends to NCLC, another Oregon conservation group worthy of their support. “The coast was so magical to me as a child, and it still holds that magic for me,” Sharon says. “I can’t help but look at my surroundings and want them to be preserved forever.” Thank you Sharon (center of photo), Trailmix, and all of our CoastWalkers.

SPECIAL GIFTS Each spring we gather in the Sitka spruce grove at Circle Creek Conservation Center for a ceremony we call The Forest Remembers. We read aloud the names of all those who have been honored with memorial gifts to North Coast Land Conservancy throughout our history. All are welcome to join us at the next The Forest Remembers on April 29, 2017.
Ancient wisdom tells us that we stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, that we drink from wells we did not dig and sit in the shade of trees we did not plant, that we are forever bound together in community. Today we come to honor those whose shoulders have given us a foundation, who provided the wellsprings from which our lives are nourished, and who nurtured the forest which sustains and delights us.
—From “The Forest Remembers” by Kit Ketcham
