The Gifford Pinchot Task Force is now the Cascade Forest Conservancy

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”normal” color=”#444444″ thickness=”3″][vc_empty_space height=”75px”][vc_column_text]Portland, OR— The Gifford Pinchot Task Force has a new name – the Cascade Forest Conservancy. The organization has also launched a new website:  www.cascadeforest.org.
The Gifford Pinchot Task Force started in 1985, as a group of volunteers and conservation advocates who came together to influence the Gifford Pinchot National Forest’s first forest plan.
After 30 years under this original name, the group decided it was time to for a change.
“Our mission remains the same as it has for three decades,” says Niki Terzieff, Chair of the Board of Directors. “However, we have grown from our early days as a volunteer task force into a fully staffed conservation organization dedicated to the sustainability of Washington’s South Cascades.”
The mission of the Cascade Forest Conservancy is to protect and sustain the forests, streams, wildlife, and communities in the heart of the Cascades through conservation, education, and advocacy. Annually, Cascade Forest Conservancy leads students and volunteers on field trips to the forest to conduct important restoration and survey projects in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and others. They also monitor timber sales and other resource management projects that could impact the sustainability and resilience of the forest ecosystem.
“The Cascade Forest Conservancy is looking forward to the next 30 years under our new name and image,” says Matt Little. “We hope many people in the community will check out our website and join us as a member as we continue our important work to protect local forests, watersheds, and wildlife for our children’s future.”[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner][vc_gallery interval=”0″ images=”164,161,145″ img_size=”full” onclick=””][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space height=”75px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”yes” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=”” css=”.vc_custom_1465592094531{background-color: #96d1ae !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space height=”125px”][latest_post_two number_of_columns=”3″ order_by=”date” order=”ASC” display_featured_images=”yes” number_of_posts=”3″][vc_empty_space height=”75px”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
