Our Mission & Vision

Columbia Land Trust conserves and cares for the Northwest places you love—the places that provide all of us well-being and an unrivaled quality of life. Learn more about our mission and our work.

Equity Commitments

Columbia Land Trust strives to ensure all our employees, colleagues, and partners feel a sense of belonging, and know that their contributions to achieving our mission are valued. Read our equity commitments.

Our Staff

At Columbia Land Trust, we often talk about our accomplishments in terms of lands, waters, and wildlife, but the truth is that we’re in the people business. Building strong relationships is at the core of our work, and caring for those relationships is as important as caring for the land we own. Get to know our staff.

Careers & Internships

Our growing organization occasionally has open positions as well as internships for people looking to gain experience at a conservation nonprofit. Learn more about our available positions.

Board of Directors

It’s no small thing that Columbia Land Trust’s board of directors is ultimately accountable for ensuring that conserved lands stay protected forever. Learn about our current roster of board members.

Press Room

Check out our recent media and news clips and our archive of Fieldbook and Annual Reports, all full of inspiring stories from the Columbia River region. Are you a member of the press? Email Communications Manager Kelsey Farabee. We’re happy to help, whether you need a quote, an expert source, or maps and images.


As we grow the number of lands we conserve, so must we grow our resources to ensure we can care for those lands forever. We are proud to share our Audit Reports and 990s with you.
