Thank you to local businesses!

Nov 20, 2017
Local businesses have been showing the Land Trust their love recently. Read on for a few highlights.

Here at the Deschutes Land Trust, we appreciate our community of supporters every day of the year. One of the incredible parts of being a nonprofit in Central Oregon is the support that area businesses provide. We’re thrilled to highlight just a few local businesses that have been showing the Land Trust their love recently:

Deschutes Brewery

A local business that’s been a long-time supporter of the Land Trust, Deschutes Brewery pledged $30,000 to the Campaign for Whychus Creek this year. The gift was the largest corporate contribution to the Campaign. In addition, the Land Trust was also the featured nonprofit for the Deschutes Brewery’s Community Pint Nights in June. Deschutes Brewery employees have also volunteered with the Land Trust. Thank you, Deschutes Brewery, for your commitment to helping preserve our natural areas!

 

FootZone

FootZone and its owner Teague Hatfield have been supportive of the Land Trust for more than a decade! Every June, FootZone donates the proceeds from the Dirty Half—a half marathon trail run at the Phil’s Trail complex. We also get the opportunity to come out and support the Dirty Half with volunteers at aid stations and the finish line. It is such a fun event! Thank you, FootZone, for your continued support!

 

Hydro Flask

The Land Trust was honored to be chosen by Hydro Flask’s employees as one of the beneficiaries of this year’s Seconds Sale. Though the sale was busy, lots of great deals were had. The end result: Hydro Flask presented half of the proceeds—$22,000—to the Land Trust! In addition, Hydro Flask employees have volunteered with the Land Trust, helping to plant native trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and grasses at Whychus Canyon Preserve. Thank you so much, Hydro Flask, for your support!

 

Patagonia@Bend

Central Oregon’s local Patagonia@Bend secured a $5,000 grant through Patagonia, Inc.’s Retail Grants Program this year to support the Land Trust. Owners Rod and Katie Bien have been supportive of the Land Trust in the past, and we appreciate their commitment to our conservation efforts. We’ve also had the opportunity to spread the Land Trust love at Patagonia@Bend on First Friday! Thank you, Patagonia@Bend, for your enthusiasm and dedication!

 

We hope you’ll show your love for these local businesses. Tell them you appreciate their support of the Deschutes Land Trust and our collective work to conserve and care for land in Central Oregon.
