Wallowa Land Trust is a local nonprofit, tax-exempt organization founded in 2004 by Wallowa County landowners and residents. Our mission is to protect the rural nature of the Wallowa Country by working cooperatively with private landowners, Indian tribes, local communities and governmental entities to conserve land. We use voluntary, non-regulatory tools to protect the places we love in our corner of NE Oregon: natural areas, wildlife habitat, open spaces and working lands.
Wallowa Land Trust works to secure important lands in Wallowa County by working with willing landowners to protect their property. To date we have completed four conservation projects, providing permanent protection for a working farm, riparian areas along the Lostine and Wallowa Rivers, shoreline on Wallowa Lake, and two forested properties -- one on the backside of the east moraine and one on the west moraine.
