Our mission is to be the guardians of Bagby Hot Springs and make a difference in the greater Clackamas River Ranger District by recruiting and training volunteers to participate in stewardship projects.

Become a member and join the special community of people who care about Bagby Hot Springs, the Wilderness and the Forest.

Bagby Conservation Collective was formed by people who have been volunteering at the Springs and in the Clackamas River Ranger District for decades. We are a local grassroots 501(c)3 non-profit organization, officially incorporated in Oregon. Our board is composed of dedicated non-profit professionals with years of experience caring for recreation infrastructure and leading volunteers on stewardship projects on public lands.

Our goals are to serve as the guardians of Bagby Hot Springs – watching over them, prevent exploitation, development, and destruction of a place so many hold sacred – And engage volunteers in stewardship projects like trail parties, trash and illegal dumpsite clean up, and supporting conservation efforts.

Bagby Conservation Collective will be there to help. By working to address major issues, in partnership with the Forest Service, we serve the springs, wilderness, forest and the communities that rely on them. Your support, now and in the future, will ensure the ongoing presence of a community-oriented, non-profit guardian of the springs.

Your donations, in-kind donations, and volunteer efforts will make a difference far beyond the springs as we grow together and become caretakers, stewards, and guardians of the wilderness, forests, mountains and waters that surround the springs we love.
