Our Project: Oregon
Grand European Travel is based in Lake Oswego, Oregon. In 2017, wildfires accounted for the loss of 665,000 acres of forest across more than 2,000 fires. A new analysis recently showed that forests are also shrinking on both state and private land, where an estimated 522,000 acres of forest have disappeared since 2000 - an area six times larger than the city of Portland and equal to more than half of Oregon’s designated forests. Though opting to receive e-documents, your contribution will help us plant trees and restore forests in Oregon.
Protect endangered wildlife
Oregon's old-growth forests provide habitat for hundreds of species of fish and wildlife, including threatened species like the Northern Spotted Owl and the Oregon Spotted Frog.
Stabilize our climate
Forests are an essential part of our planet’s carbon and water cycles. A fully grown tree can release hundreds of liters of water in one day! Healthy trees absorb carbon dioxide and keep our climate stable.
Keep watersheds clean
Trees filter excess sediment, nutrients, and toxins before they enter waterways. They provide shade for streams, making them healthy environments for fish, such as Oregon's rainbow trout, steelhead, and Chinook salmon.
