In partnership with the Siuslaw National Forest (SNF) and others, Cascade Pacific facilitates forest stewardship through the Siuslaw Collaborative Watershed Restoration Program. A large number of partners including SNF, CPRCD, Watershed Councils, Soil & Water Conservation Districts, Tribes, non-profit groups and others collaborate on forest restoration efforts on the SNF and surrounding lands. CPRCD manages the Stewardship Fund which supports watershed restoration projects in the Alsea, Hebo, Marys Peak, and Siuslaw Stewardship areas. CPRCD is currently involved with the McKenzie Stewardship Group in efforts to implement Stewardship Contracting on the Willamette National Forest.
Cascade Pacificís Food & Farm program promotes the connections between agriculture, economic development and conservation. We host the annual Local Food Connection conference, serve as a fiscal sponsor for several farming projects in the south Willamette Valley, and participate in the Oregon Community Food Systems Network. The LFC event brings together farmers and buyers to form new relationships and expand the sourcing of locally grown food in Linn, Lane and Benton County and other areas.
