Information from Central Coast Land Conservancy
Carla Perry, Coordinator
To continue their mission to preserve and manage lands along the coasts of Lincoln, Tillamook and Western Lane counties, the Central Coast Land Conservancy (CCLC) has received the first of two grants from the Yarg Foundation to take these activities to a higher level.
The funds are aimed at increasing CCLC’s financial stability so that more lands can be acquired and preserved for future generations. The funds will also help formulate management plans for each property acquired.
The second phase involves relationship building with those who closely identify with CCLC’s preservation mission – volunteers, individual donors, foundations and new board members. The mission includes community outreach and holding special events and tours throughout the year of CCLC’s current and expanding protected properties.
The Yarg Foundation grant comes with a 25% match requirement. CClC has already received help with the match requirement through a generous grant from the Koons Family fund of the Oregon Community Foundation but even more is needed to cover the cost of land restoration, special events, community outreach and more to familiarize local and regional residents about the environmental and financial benefits of conserving the Oregon Coast’s precious natural legacy. Those who would like to donate to this ongoing cause may contact CCLC at P.O. Box 1344, Depoe Bay, OR 97341. If you’d like to donate electronically you may do so through CCLC’s website at CentralLandConservancy.org.
We would also like to announce that we are searching for board members who live specifically in the Lincoln City, Seal Rock and western Lane County areas.
