The crew at North Coast Land Conservancy suffered a catastrophic loss last week when their headquarters at Circle Creek in Seaside burned to the ground. Not only did they lose their home office, but along with went thousands of hours of work in the form of records, files, photos and archives.
NCLC’s work covers land from the Columbia River south to Lincoln City, from the peak of the Coast Range to the near shore ocean. NCLC works with landowners, communities and regional partners to make key connections in the landscape that allow for wildlife to safely live and migrate and for the coastal bioregion to not just function, but thrive.
With 2012 winding to a close, some readers of this blog may be making end-of-year charitable contributions. We ask that you think of NCLC, as there is no organization in greater need of support in a time like this, and NCLC’s mission and work supports the type of outdoor recreation and appreciation we at OFFB hold dear.
Trout Unlimited’s Alan Moore said “The North Coast Land Conservancy was TU’s first partner on the North Coast when we started our habitat initiative there five years ago, and they have remained an anchor and countless others every day since, and for many years before.”
