Geese in the Klamath Basin
It’s fall, and that means this is a prime chance for you to protect Oregon’s unique quality of life for today and for future generations.
We know you understand that threats to our natural world are growing, as are demands on the lands, food, water, energy, and other resources people and wildlife need to thrive. As green as Oregon IS, the efforts made thus far are simply not enough. We need more people and businesses supporting the environmental movement. EarthShare, and your gifts to us, are working to make that happen.
Right now, EarthShare Oregon member groups are actively working on issues and threats like:
- The health of the Klamath River basin: 35 environmental charities (including KS Wild, Oregon Wild and the Audubon Society of Portland) joined together, asking the Department of the Interior to provide water to the Tule Lake and Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs) of northern California and southern Oregon. Without action, important bird habitat could go dry and is already causing wildlife die-offs.
- Keeping pollution out of our local rivers: the Oregon Environmental Council’s “Love Your River” challenge educated Oregonians on how to properly “Soap Up Your Car, Not Your River” to protect native fish and wildlife from chemicals.
- Engaging local residents in caring for our natural treasures: Summer might be over, but EarthShare groups are still doing lots of volunteer projects and fun hikes and outings to connect you and your family with the great outdoors.
EarthShare Oregon workplaces are now launching their annual giving campaigns for employees; some companies even match employee donations. If you work for one of our business partners, or if you just want to help Oregon’s environment, give on Global Giving or through your workplace today.
Contact Meghan Humphreys at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of a business that could begin offering environmental workplace giving to their employees. Your help would make it easy for MORE people to be like you - a steward of Oregon's environmental legacy.
