October E-newsletter

From our Executive Director

Dear Friends and Wetland Supporters, I hope this finds you well in these challenging times, and that you have been able to find some solace spending time outside. As we approach our 40th anniversary, we are coming together to find new and innovative ways to continue our work of wetland protection and restoration.  As development and climate change impact our landscapes in Oregon, I ask you today to commit to the effort to conserve and restore Oregon’s Greatest Wetlands.

Now more than ever, wetland protection is becoming increasingly urgent. As we build our strategic plan for the future, we need to make sure that communities across Oregon are aware of the value of wetlands to ensure the biodiversity that our state enjoys and the protections to communities that wetlands provide.

Nick captured some aerial videography of our crew on the ground, and also conducted a drone-based mapping survey of a 5 acre section of the wetland that can be used for planning, monitoring, and outreach.

Nick’s work provided The Wetlands Conservancy with a unique perspective on the area of marsh that was surveyed.
