Our Mission
Enhance and preserve Oregon’s parks

Our Mission

Oregon Parks Forever is a statewide nonprofit organization raising funds to enhance & preserve special places and experiences in Oregon’s Parks. With the growing popularity of outdoor recreation, visitation to parks in Oregon has exploded. Deferred maintenance and the additional wear and tear has resulted in costs of running Oregon parks exceeding available funding. Oregon Parks Forever was formed to help supplement existing funding sources, in order to preserve and protect the experience of using the parks.
