Over the past two years the Network of Oregon Watershed Councils (NOWC) and Oregon Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) have built a formal partnership that includes shared office space and staff capacity, as well as jointly sponsored programming. We are increasingly working with the Oregon Conservation Education & Assistance Network (OCEAN) and Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts (COLT).
This collaboration has brought efficiency to the work we do, enabled us to help build key statewide relationships, and garnered more attention for our collective conservation efforts. Our joint work has also lent greater value to the individual identities of each organization.
To better highlight our collective efforts, we have created a new name for the partnership – The Oregon Conservation Partnership (OrCP). This new name won’t replace individual organization identities or logos, but it will serve as an umbrella to help highlight those places where we work together. We will continue to operate as individual organizations with distinct missions, goals, and identities.
This website will house those resources and we hope that you will visit regularly to find valuable content to help increase your ability to get conservation on the ground.
We look forward to serving you all, both individually, and jointly as the Oregon Conservation Partnership.
