Although the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was established by Teddy Roosevelt in 1908, The occupation of Malheur teaches us some valuable lessons. As Friends groups who support our local public lands, we need to expand community knowledge and engagement broadly. This heritage of public lands requires all of us—to work together.

Here are two ways you can give to make a difference. 
     Support the Conservation Lands Foundation’s Crowdrise campaign that invites donations “to support veterans, youth, and Native Americans who want to work as conservation stewards on BLM’s National Conservation Lands. The Conservation Lands Foundation also provides support to the Friends Grassroots Network, a group of 58 Friends organizations, like us, who champion our local public lands. 
     If you prefer to help strengthen your local Friends of Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, you can renew your membership or make a donation.  Please contact us about volunteering your talents and skills with us!
     Help us educate, advocate and protect the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument. For 2016 we are in the process to show the:
•    Need and ways to advocate, protect, and conserve our public lands. 
•    Scientific and cultural benefits of our public lands, including biodiversity, clean air, water, and land.
      

Thank you for your continued support!
