As a continuation of last week's blog about the Willamette Week's Give!Guide, two more Oregon Wild staff members weigh in about which organizations they are choosing to donate to this year. 

Marielle Cowdin, Outreach and Marketing Coordinator:

The Gift Of Giving

The last two weeks of the year is a time when a lot of people are making donations to support the organizations whose work they value. And this year, Oregon Wild is once again honored to be in the Willamette Week’s annual Give!Guide along with 149 other amazing non-profits who make Oregon such an amazing place.

Defending Monuments for the Next Generation

This last weekend, Oregon Wild staffer Gaby Diaz partnered with Passport Oregon to bring a group of young people outside to explore the Old Salmon River Trail. They meandered through old growth forests, talked about salmon and their role in healthy ecosystems, and pointed out the plants and animals that make this special place their home.

For those of you who have been following my hiking adventures this summer and fall as I work to revise and republish Wendell Wood’s 1991 “Walking Guide to Oregon’s Ancient Forests”, welcome to the latest installment. This will also be my last post on this subject for a while, as my sabbatical is at an end I will be returning to my regular job as Western Oregon Field Coordinator for Oregon Wild next week. That doesn’t mean the book is done, though!

November Wolf and Wildlife Update

A lot has happened since our last update. It’s hard to imagine so much can happen in 30 days, but Oregon’s wolves have had a challenging month. The good news? Thanks to supporters like you, we’ll continue to elevate these issues and get wolf recovery back on track.

Legacy of a Dead Wolf

I love my jobs. Except when I don’t. 

I am privileged to be paid a modest salary fighting for public values that are also my own. My wife and I (mostly my wife) also run a small farm and bed and breakfast in one of the most spectacular landscapes in North America.

Thanks to the wisdom of those who came before us, over one million acres of my county is publicly owned – some of it protected as the Wilderness that it is. I’ve got a pretty good life and a great back yard!

October Wolf and Wildlife Update

Happy Wolf Awareness Week! Hopefully there are opportunities in your community to celebrate the role of wolves as a keystone, iconic species. If there aren’t any coordinated events, perhaps use this week as an opportunity to spend time in nature, exploring the wild landscapes that wolves positively impact.
