EarthShare Oregon recently completed our 2011 re-affiliation process, and ALL 70 of our members have renewed for this coming campaign year! 

Our work within the environmental community, and our promise to our donors, is to ensure that every dollar donated through EarthShare benefits nonprofits that are doing their work and doing it responsibly. We scrutinize their financial information, audits and stories about current projects to confirm that donors' dollars are making positive environmental change in Oregon and around the world.

A few new accomplishments by EarthShare Oregon members, made possible by our donors, include:

 

Tualatin Riverkeepers trained volunteers facilitated community paddle trips for more than 600 people in 2010. TRK has led more than 12,000 people on family-friendly guided paddle trips on the Tualatin River since 1993.

The Environmental Center is transforming a vacant City of Bend lot into the Kansas Avenue Learning Garden. The garden demonstrates low-water, chemical-free home and garden techniques, such as xeriscaping, native landscaping, and composting for local residents to learn in a hands-on environment.

Columbia Riverkeeper defended the Columbia River Estuary ecosystem from two proposed coal plants and two Liquefied Natural Gas terminals that would have filled or dredged 100+ acres of salmon nurseries, and generated greenhouse gases equivalent to 4 million cars' emissions.

Thank you for giving through EarthShare -- your gift is 70 supporting organizations like these who are keeping people healthy, protecting places for wildlife, and reducing global warming, both in Oregon and across the globe.
