Get Outdoors Day
Oregon land trusts work to protect our rivers, farms, forests, wetlands, and wild places. Our land is not always easy to see or experience, but each acre benefits our diverse communities. On Get Outdoors Day, we want you to experience these places, properties, and big open spaces. Attend an event, bring friends, take pictures, and have fun outdoors! #GetOutdoorsOR
