Challenging Wall Street Forestry
Who owns Oregon’s private forests and why do they they pay so few taxes? How does Wall Street investment money impact Oregon’s forests? The Coast Range Association is the leading organization answering these and other questions. Our latest report, Wealth, Income and Rural Communities is now available. We follow the money from private corporate timber sales asking two questions, who gets the money and how much stay in local rural communities?

Communities & the Living Ocean
Protecting & preserving communities in the era of climate change.
Coastal communities depend on the beauty of the coast and the bounty of the ocean. We are working to protect the ocean by conserving coastal resources, supporting the state's marine research program for near shore reserves and educating about the impact of the climate crisis on the oceans of the world.
Speaking Truth to Power
“climate change beyond the next few decades will depend primarily on the amount of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases emitted globally and on the remaining uncertainty in the sensitivity of Earth’s climate to those emissions (very high confidence). With significant reductions in the emissions of greenhouse gases, the global annually averaged temperature rise could be limited to 3.6°F (2°C) or less. Without major reductions in these emissions, the increase in annual average global temperatures relative to preindustrial times could reach 9°F (5°C) or more by the end of this century (high confidence).”
