|We are inviting donors to celebrate their favorite stretch of shoreline through a special fund-raising competition pegged to our signature CoastWatch program. We now have a special place on our website devoted to this campaign: https://oregonshores.org/50-years-oregon-shores-conservation-coalition.
This year, when you contribute to Oregon Shores, regardless of the amount, you can designate a CoastWatch mile to be honored by your gift. You don’t need to be a CoastWatcher to do this; a CoastWatch mile can simply be a way of identifying your favorite stretch of shoreline. If you don’t know where CoastWatch miles are located in relation to your favored area, see the Tour of the Miles feature on the website, https://oregonshores.org/coastwatch/tour-miles.
If you donate via the website, you will find a place to indicate the mile you wish to honor. (You will see this after you begin to make a donation; a box where you can indicate the mile number will appear before final checkout.) If contributing by check, indicate this in the memo line, or add a note with the check.
There will be two winners: the mile with the highest total of donations, and the mile with the highest total of donors.
