A Special Thanks!

We at the Central Coast Land Conservancy would like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make our first fundraiser a success. 

Despite the wind, rain, and just plain nasty weather, many new faces and familiar friends showed up to show their support in preserving what makes the Central Oregon Coast unique.

The silent auction was plentiful thanks to generous community support from local artists and businesses with items ranging from music to metal sculpture, glass art to photographs, hand crafted chocolates to gourmet dog biscuits, seafood gift certificates and massage gifts... Music was preformed by Tony Kaltenberg, while the food flowed from a generous donation by The Side Door Cafe and board member Charles Wooldridge, with drinks provided by The Flying Dutchman Winery

Sincerely, we appreciate all of the support and look forward to continued growth in the coming years!

Mushroom Season! 

Fall is mushroom time in Oregon, and thanks to September's rain showers, this year's wild mushroom crop is a good one! 

Here is a guide to foraging and identifying your own and a video on selecting the best in your local super market.  

Whatever way you go, be sure to try this yummy recipe for Hungarian Mushroom Soup!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms, sliced

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 splash lemon juice

  1. Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the onions and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms have released their liquids and it has evaporated, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Mix in the flour and paprika and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the broth, dill, soy sauce, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes
  4. Season with salt, pepper mix in the sour cream, lemon juice and dill and remove from heat.

November 15th is National Philanthropy Day!

According to the official National Philanthropy Day website, this day is set aside to "recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities and our world."

Great philanthropist are known in history for their many and frequent monetary contributions, big and small. Many of them do so in an anonymous way, not looking for recognition.

While we commonly view Philanthropy as a monetary contribution, the voluntary efforts at fund raising is also within the definition of philanthropy. 

With this is mind we want to extend our thanks and gratitude to all in our community who go above and beyond to make our world a little better. Thank you!
