Take the Skyline Forest Community Survey

Jun 01, 2022
The Land Trust is leading a new effort to develop a community vision for Skyline Forest. Take our Skyline Forest Community Survey and share your thoughts on the future of the forest.


As longtime Central Oregonians know, Deschutes Land Trust has worked for nearly 20 years to permanently protect Skyline Forest—the 33,000 acre forest between Bend and Sisters. Because the Land Trust can only move at the pace and will of the landowner, we still have yet to find a permanent conservation solution for Skyline Forest. But we haven’t given up, and we believe the solution is out there!

Towards that end, the Land Trust is leading a new effort to develop a community vision for Skyline Forest. Together with a coalition of community groups, we are working to create a robust, community-wide effort that engages local organizations, leaders, and community members in creating a shared vision for Skyline Forest’s future conservation and management.

Please help us by completing our Skyline Forest Community Survey before July 31, 2022. The Land Trust and community partners will use the results of this community survey to help craft a shared community vision for Skyline Forest’s future conservation and management.

Skyline Forest protects important wildlife habitat, tremendous recreation opportunities, and the scenic green foothills that set off the Central Oregon Cascades. Together we can ensure that we find a conservation solution to permanently protect this treasure of Central Oregon.
