A measure passed by the state Legislature earlier this month aims to cut nearly two-thirds of the permits allowed for suction-dredge mining in Oregon's salmon-bearing rivers, including the Rogue River.

Protecting Oregon's environment starts with the people of Oregon.

That's why the Oregon League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, founded in 1995, works to give Oregonians the knowledge and skills they need to be effective advocates for the environment.

OLCV Education Fund also educates elected officials about environmental prioirities. Our largest program is coordinating the Oregon Conservation Network, a statewide coalition of environmental groups that promotes environmental protection in the Oregon Legislature. Read more about our programs.

We employ nine staff members and are led by a dynamic volunteer board of directors
