It's a new year, and for some, that means making a resolution to follow for the next 365 days. If the idea of packing into a crowded gym isn't your cup of tea, or if you are struggling to come up with something that lights your fire, make the Land Trust a part of your resolution this year! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Get to know us better:
Join us for Nature Nights, or when our Walks + Hikes resume in the spring, resolve to attend a few. We have an amazing crew of volunteers and staff that are experts at sharing their love and knowledge of the natural world. We have a variety of topics that are sure to draw your attention. Bookmark our events page to prepare!

Explore our protected lands:
The Land Trust owns and manages a number of Preserves that are open to the public. Choose one (or two!) and get outside! Our Preserves have something new to experience every season, and these special places offer wonderful ways to connect with the land and build a sense of place within you. Pick a Preserve and get to know it. Send us photos of your experiences and tell us how the land inspired you!

The Land Trust offers many volunteer opportunities throughout the year. If you would like to give back to the land, fill out our volunteer form or come see us at the Deschutes Public Library's Know Volunteering Expo January 22nd, and let us know your interests. Then, sign up for the opportunities that interest you most. You will meet wonderful people, and be protecting and caring for land in Central Oregon!

Whatever you resolve for 2017, we hope you will get to know your Land Trust better. We look forward to getting to know you!
