2009 Success

Grantee:  Central Oregon LandWatch

Result: 500,000-acres protected

Central Oregon LandWatch succeeded in its campaign to convince the Oregon legislature to designate the entire Metolius River basin an Area of Critical Statewide Concern. The designation halted two proposed destination resorts that would have significantly diminished the natural qualities of this Central Oregon watershed.
