Central Coast Land Conservancy

The Central Coast Land Conservancy supports the preservation of open spaces, scenic vistas, working landscapes and natural areas valued by the people and communities of the Central Oregon Coast and important to the long-term health and well-being of our native plants and animals.

The mission of the Central Coast Land Conservancy is to hold and manage for the benefit of the public, in perpetuity, lands that constitute the natural heritage of Tillamook, Lincoln, and Western Lane counties.

  • natural areas that form wildlife habitats
  • lands with plant communities unique to the Central Oregon Coast
  • lands with cultural and historic significance
  • lands that are scenic and/or provide open space

Our goal is to restore, maintain, and enhance these lands that surround us – for the benefit of all residents and visitors in the area.
The Central Coast Land Conservancy provides services through:

  • Accepting title land and holding conservation easements
  • Assisting with mitigation of lands, conservation easements, and stewardship contracts
  • Providing or arranging for professional ecological management of sensitive natural areas and on lands held in fee title. Identifying critical processes and elements that need protection
