“Mountain Rose Herbs values the health of the lands and rivers that surround our shared community. Year after year, we know we can rely on Mountain Rose Herbs to invest in our local land conservation work because the people behind Mountain Rose truly care.”

-Brandi Ferguson, Donor Relations Manager, McKenzie River Trust

For the month of April, Mountain Rose Herbs is sponsoring a $5000 matching gift challenge for our friends at the McKenzie River Trust. This means, we will match your donation to this important non-profit organization dollar-for-dollar!

McKenzie River Trust is a local nonprofit partner working to protect special lands, rivers and waterways in Western Oregon by connecting landowners and community members with conservation efforts. The Trust helps connect Mountain Rose Herbs employees to these natural places through multiple volunteer projects as part of our Mountain Rose River Project. For over 5 years, we've been sharing in the growth of one significant place--Green Island--mulching, planting trees, and acting as stewards of this special land.

This year, we’d like to encourage folks to become a member and make a lasting difference in protecting the McKenzie basin and surrounding watersheds here in Oregon where water plays a role in our ecology, biodiversity, and quality of life. You can become a member today!

In addition to our matching gift pledge, if you are one of the first 100 people to donate $125 or more, you will also receive a reusable Chico grocery bag! We appreciate you joining us in sharing your support.
