Purchasing, permanently protecting and managing a beautiful meadow or a key steelhead stream for future generations has significant costs associated with it.  The Five Rivers Society consists of people and business that have demonstrated a special commitment to the future of these lands with an annual gift of $1,000 or more. 

Why become a society member? Because you want to invest in land conservation that is:

  • Effective. The Land Trust achieves results and is professional and pragmatic in carrying out our mission.
  • Collaborative. The Land Trust cooperates with landowners, communities, and other stakeholders to conserve land most effectively.
  • Local. The Land Trust is locally based, responsive to local needs and dedicated to building the local community by connecting people to the outdoors.
  • Enduring. The Land Trust has been, and will continue to be, leaders in local conservation as we protect these important lands forever.


Invest today and join other community leaders in ensuring Central Oregon’s beauty and quality of life for generations to come. All Society members will receive special recognition and be invited to private tours, events and our annual reception. For more information about the Land Trust's top giving society, contact Brad Chalfant, Executive Director.

If you are interested in investing in the Land Trust in other ways than an annual cash gift, there are options including gifts of stock, land, or including the Land Trust in your will. Learn more.
