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. Oregon Parks Forever was formed to help supplement existing funding sources, in order to preserve and protect the experience of using the parks for Oregonians and all those who visit our beautiful state.

As stewards of our parks, and for the benefit of all who enjoy them, we are committed to preserving resources and enhancing opportunities that will maximize the values of Oregon parks, now and for generations to come.

Wildfire Tree Replanting Campaign
Each dollar donated plants a tree!

Wildfire Tree Replanting Campaign

During the summer of 2020, more than one million acres of trees on Oregon lands were burned. This was more than twice the amount of damage that Oregon has experienced in recent years.

Last year, we funded the planting of 553,000 trees! Now Marion County is ready for some more help.

One of the hardest hit places was the Santiam Canyon between Salem and Bend. Please help us plant 300,000 trees with Marion County to ensure that in the future, and for future generations, these burned areas will once again be lush and green!

Each dollar donated will plant one tree!
