Our 25th anniversary year has been one for the history books. Through the pandemic and record-breaking wildfires, this year has been a memorable one…and challenging.
Here are a few examples of what we are working on now:
We have set a goal of raising enough funds to plant at least ONE MILLION trees, to ensure that in the future, and for future generations, these burned areas will once again be lush and green!

The Oregon Parks & Recreation Commission today accepted a donation from Oregon Parks Forever to construct hike-bike pods at three additional state parks along the Oregon Coast.
On May 15th, Oregon Parks Forever celebrated our 25th anniversary. On the occasion of this special anniversary, we would like to recognize the impact that Brian Booth and the Founding Trustees have had by creating a non-profit to raise money to support our parks.
COVID caused a huge reduction in staffing across Federal & State parks & forests in Oregon, followed by very large increases in park visitation as people were taking vacations locally.
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will offer limited camping at many state park campgrounds starting June 9.
This year, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our organization. As we reflect on our accomplishments, we also look to the future in which our work will contribute to the well-being of not only our state parks, but all federal, state, local, and tribal lands across the state. We have decided to expand our reach.
