Oregon Lands At Work

Across Oregon, farms, forests and ranches are doing good things for the economy and for the environment. They’re economically productive and vibrant. They produce the food we eat, the wood we build with. They’re home to the animals we love, the streams we fish, the forests we hike. They’re the legacy we leave for future Oregonians.

These special landscapes are possible through a dedicated collaboration between family farms and ranches, forestry and timber interests, conservation groups and government agencies. All coming together to ensure that economic opportunities are in balance with clean and abundant water, beautiful landscapes and vibrant habitats for fish and wildlife.

It takes a special breed of people — Oregonians — to make this partnership successful. And thanks to them, these lands are working throughout Oregon.
