The Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts and Land Trust Alliance release a short film with a big message.
This past December, the Land Trust Alliance (LTA) and Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts (COLT) hosted a night of food, drinks, and holiday season cheer at the Lagunitas Community Room in NE Portland. Oregon land trusters, conservationists, community organizers, and environmental movers and shakers gathered together and got an opportunity to meet one another, share successes, and toast to a new short film produced by COLT and LTA, titled Wild Possibilities. The film features members from a few different land trusts around the state—Lower Nehalem Community Trust, Wetlands Conservancy, Greenbelt Land Trust, Wallowa Land Trust, Columbia Land Trust—each with a different story, but a shared common goal: uniting communities and conserving land.
The Backyard Habitat Certification Program, which Columbia Land Trust manages in collaboration with the Portland Audubon Society, is featured through the perspectives of a family putting down roots in Southeast Portland.
