Improving Working Lands

Stewardship: fulfilling our obligation to the community and future generations by managing land responsibly and responding progressively to changes in our economy and climate.

Our stewardship unites ecology, community, and economy. Through husbandry, care, and conservation, we improve working lands. We sustain Wallowa County’s rich heritage of making a living from the land through sustainable forestry, ranching and agriculture. We work with landowners and resource managers to implement on-the-ground projects. 

As of today, we have

  • Restored 32 miles of stream habitat
  • Maintained and enhanced over 11,000 acres of forest through harvest, thinning, and burning
  • Treated 17,980 acres of land for weeds

Additionally, 

  • We treat 200 miles of stream bank for noxious weeds per year 
  • Each year, the WSP program puts $300,000-$500,000 into the local economy through contracts, supplies, and salaries

Stewardship Work Requires Partners

Stewardship does not happen alone. We work with others to conceive and complete projects. This collaborative approach allows us to leverage resources and transcend land ownership boundaries.
