A Year to Celebrate! 

We celebrated many milestones this year with the help of like minded people and grass-root efforts throughout the past. We can proudly say we have made an impact! 
The Wilderness Act turns 50 years old:  After signing the 1964 Act that passed Congress with only 1 dissenting vote, President Lynden Johnson said: “If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning.”  
The Cascade Head Scenic Research Area turns 40: For those of you who love hiking on Cascade Head and enjoy the beauty of these forests or taking a class at Sitka Center, be grateful that this area was protected from housing development by an
Act of Congress to become the breathtaking area it is today! 
The Clean Water Act turns 42 years: Because of the Clean Water Act's protections and programs, waterways across the United States have been protected from pollution or restored to health, but the Clean Water Act protection for many critical waterways is now in jeopardy.
Please lend your voice and learn more about how you can help.

Yaquina Art Exhibit
The first property that the Central Coast Land Conservancy acquired was a 5 acre property along Arnold Slough, near Toledo, OR.  This property, donated by Al and Oleta Jones is a beautiful piece of property containing salt marshes, open water, and upland areas.  This sprawling property has become the subject of a number of plein air water colors done by renowned artist Michael Gibbons
A reception for Gibbons will be held on November 15 from 5:00-7:00 pm at the
Pacific Maritime and Heritage Center  in Newport, on the bay front. This traveling exhibit "Yaquina"  is on display for the first time in Oregon. From now until January 1st, 2015  paintings done along the Yaquina estuary can be viewed. Those who RSVP for the reception will be put on a list with the $5 entry fee waived! Reservations: (541) 265-7509 
Art and Conservation
On September 14th 2014, the inaugural "Art and Conservation" gathering was held.  Attendance was great as Artists and Conservationists from across the Central Coast gathered enjoying art while conservation groups explained their unique missions to the casual crowd. This gathering is hopefully the first of many and focused on our rich history of conservation inspired and promoted by art in the United States.  A short presentation about this history was given by Fran Recht, Board Member of the Central Coast Land Conservancy adapted from information researched by Carla Perry of Dancing Moon Press.  You can view this short presentation now by visiting our website.
