Stellar news from the good folks at Umpqua. Many thanks to you – and the rest of the groups with boots on the ground – for such a tremendous contribution to the efforts in Southeast Alaska.

To celebrate Umpqua’s 45th Birthday, we promised a donation of $45,000 to preservation efforts in the Tongass National Forest and today, we were able to deliver on that promise. In collaboration with Sportsman’s Alliance, Trout Unlimited and the American Salmon Forest Coalition, the money will be spent on education and awareness programs as well as spawning and rearing habitat preservation in the Tongass.
Thank you to Trout Unlimited Alaska and Sportsman’s Alliance for all of their hard work and dedication to the protection and preservation of our public lands. Both organizations are working hard to change the future of our public lands, for the better. The Tongass National Forest has one of the United States largest salmon populations– and much of the forest is unprotected. This needs to change and we will keep demanding that change.
Thanks again to Sportsman’s Alliance, Trout Unlimited and the American Salmon Forest Coalition. We are honored to make this donation to this cause with these groups.
