Oregon white oak savannas and woodlands once covered between 400 and 500,000 acres in the Willamette Valley and, now most of the trees and their historic habitat have disappeared and less than 5% remain, making them one of the most threatened ecosystems in the country.
Designed by our team, the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) can help give native oak woodlands and grasslands a better chance by addressing critical issues facing habitat restoration and expansion.
The RCPP is open to qualifying Polk County residents with oak woodlands. We need you because 98% of the remaining oaks are on private land. You have the opportunity to take an active role in the preservation of these majestic trees for future generations. We provide incentive payments for activities and plants that can benefit these ecosystems.
