Giving Thanks for Land and Water

Students write in nature at Green Island

The earth gives so much. From the cold waters that sustain our bodies, to the damp forests that heal our souls, there is much to be grateful for. 

McKenzie River Trust is collecting love letters to the lands and rivers of Oregon. We invite you to join us in reflection and appreciation of all our natural world provides. From the mountains and coastlines, rivers and swamps, lands far away, and birds in the backyard, join us in honoring all that our natural world provides.

This collection of letters, poems, and stories may be shared publicly. You can opt-out of having your story shared as a part of the larger project below.
