WHAT WE DO
The Lower Nehalem Community Trust is a member supported, nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation and restoration of natural lands. Help us protect the scenic vistas, sparkling rivers and bays, and dense forests that define the northern coast of Oregon. Together we have an opportunity to shape the landscape for the next millennium.
To preserve land and nurture conservation values in partnership with an engaged community in the Nehalem region of the Oregon Coast.
We envision a world where we live within a thriving ecosystem that includes clean water, healthy forests, habitat for diverse species of wildlife, and a strong connection between people and place. We also see LNCT as a professionally managed, board governed organization with a welcoming spirit. Our programs are driven by our conservation values, strong community involvement, and engaged committees that share the work and guide the leadership.
The Lower Nehalem Community Trust believes that our community is the heart of our conservation efforts. We practice respect, accountability, integrity, commitment, learning and cooperation in all that we do. Our work is guided by the following conservation values: respect for all species, recognition that nature and natural systems sustain all life, responsibility for human impact on nature, living in harmony/balance with nature, understanding the place in which we live, learning as a process, species diversity, clean water, healthy habitats and resilient ecosystems.
