Wild Splendor Annual Gala Sponsorships

Our marquee event of the year, our Wild Splendor gala is an institution in the Portland-Vancouver area conservation community. Each year, more than 320 community leaders attend to celebrate the leading-edge conservation and restoration achievements we accomplish together. Wild Splendor is on Thursday, September 13th, 2018 at The Loft on 8th in inner southeast Portland.

Tour & Picnic Sponsorship Opportunities

Land Trust Tours

Each year, the Land Trust offers 6-8 immersive, educational tours on our conserved lands. Because many of these environments are ecologically sensitive, these are rare chances for tour-goers to see some of the least traveled, wild places in the Columbia River region. We also explore nature close to home, such as backyard habitats in Portland and prime sandhill crane habitat within Vancouver’s city limits. Each tour offers a unique education component, with topics ranging from astronomy and geology to tracking, foraging, and survival skills. Tour sponsorship packages include:

  • Naming Rights to a tour of your choice
  • Branding on associated digital and print promotions

Annual Picnic

The Columbia Land Trust annual membership picnic is a prime opportunity for our ardent supporters to gather and enjoy the best part about living in the Northwest–being outdoors in the summer. Our picnic allows our staff and board to thank our members for their support while also allowing folks to enjoy the fruits of their support: the permanent conservation of remarkable lands and waters. Our 2018 picnic naming sponsor package is only available to one organization.

  • Naming rights to annual member appreciation event
  • Branding on all associated digital and print promotions
  • Custom engagement opportunities at the Member Picnic

This year’s picnic will take place on Saturday, July 21st in Stevenson, Washington. Download our picnic sponsorship packet for more details.
