Stretching across more than 500,000 acres of public land in Northwest Oregon between Portland and the Coast, the Tillamook Rainforest is an oasis of secluded salmon streams, popular recreational trails and important hunting and gathering areas.

These lands are owned by all Oregonians and the state has an obligation to manage them for multiple forest values. But for too long, the Tillamook has been considered a tree farm with a sole focus on timber harvest.

With your help we will change that, by restoring balance to management of state lands on the North Coast.
