We’ve got some stories for you

Oregon has some of the most fertile forests, farmlands, river valleys, and coast lines in the world, and our pioneer legacy runs deep. Today, new pioneers are forging innovative business models in legacy farming, fishing and timber economies desperately in need of change, and changing urban landscapes for the better.

This spring, Ecotrust is excited to unveil two exciting new storytelling venues. First, we will be launching a completely redesigned website offering new ways for you to explore our latest work, partnerships, and events here at the Natural Capital Center. We’ll be launching the site in April and can’t wait to hear what you think. Here’s a sneak peek:

Also, we’ll be releasing our second issue of our new online magazine, Commonplace. Check out our first issue: Skeena Voices about the people and landscapes of the Skeena River basin in British Columbia, and watch for Issue 2: New Pioneers, which focuses on all things Oregon,  in April.

What’s your new pioneer story? Does your own pioneer legacy run deep? Send us photographs, drawings, ephemera, or 200 words or less that express what living in Oregon means to you. Surprise us, and we’ll surprise you by including it in Issue 2: New Pioneers.

Deadline March 20.
