About us

The Wetlands Conservancy wetland preserveThe Wetlands Conservancy (TWC) is the only organization in Oregon dedicated to promoting community and private partnerships to permanently protect and conserve Oregon’s greatest wetlands – our most biologically rich and diverse lands.

For more than 30 years, The Wetlands Conservancy has educated and assisted landowners, neighborhood groups, land trusts, and watershed councils on local stewardship to support fish and wildlife, clean water, open space and people’s appreciation of nature.

Wetlands are vital to our community’s health and the health of our environment. They clean and recharge our water supply, provide critical fish and wildlife habitat, and protect our communities from floods. Today The Wetlands Conservancy owns and manages 32 preserves and more than 1,500 acres across Oregon.
