The Southern Oregon Land Conservancy currently has a focus on conserving private land along the Colestin-Siskiyou Summit area.  Their vision is to conserve this corridor between the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, Klamath National Forest and Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest.

MEMBER OF THE BOARD - Community Conservation Group

The conservation area near my art studio has four distinct ecosystems within a relatively small space almost completely surrounded by development, so there has been concern about its fragility and its importance. We have tiny Western Screech Owls, Pacific Skinks and other creatures raising families right by the fence lines. The forest floor has changed, water supplies have been diverted and some trees have fallen. The district parks do their best to care for fragile areas, but community support is also always essential for park...

The purpose of the initiative is to highlight the plight of elephants and other iconic species and invited professional artists and celebrity supporters help by donating a simple 26-minute wildlife sketch to the  touring exhibition.

However the creation of the pond by damming Shaw’s Creek created negative consequences for fish habitat (warming the water and blocking spawning routes). Siltation of the pond is detracting from its visual and recreational utility and work is required on the dam and retaining walls. The non-profit Alton Millpond Association has been established with the aim of rehabilitating the dam and pond while improving the fish habitat and making the pond a stellar recreational amenity for the general public.

<em>Edit Conservation Project/Cause</em> Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre -  | Chantal Dupuis

Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre

Artist: Chantal Dupuis

Posted: 12 Dec, 2019 | Updated: 12 Dec, 2019

I have seen first hand what the OVWBCC does for the birds that visit their shelter and the conditions in which they have been providing that care.  Their current shelter is old, has very limited space and does not provide basic necissities even for the wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly (think about it... feedings every 30mn for a very large brood!!).  

I decided that I would try to help a local organization with raising funds to put towards their project of building a brand new, tailored for their needs, rescue shelter in Ottawa.

Ecosystem Connectivity in the Okanagan

Ecosystem connectivity describes the interconnected network of habitat patches and migration corridors that sustain all life. Maintaining ecosystem connectivity is essential for species survival, movement, and genetic diversity, as well as for the ecosystem functions which support essential food, air, and water systems for people. In the Okanagan Valley, we are facing our final opportunity to keep connectivity in the low elevation ecosystems, which are the most important for biodiversity, and most threatened. The fast rate of development in the...

I've made a life long decision to commit to caring for the mustang I adopted/tamed/and trained. I will continue to do artwork to help bring awareness to this cause.

We’ll also be using this opportunity to assess and measure perceptions of wolves and carnivores, and evaluate the effectiveness of education on reducing negative misconceptions....
