GiveBIG Spring Photo Contest Winner

May 23, 2023 in Events & Fundraising

Our first GiveBIG was a success! Thanks to the Board match, we raised over $5,000. We appreciate every single donor; for it is folks like you who will stand up with us for the sound land use policies we need.

The Spring photo contest winner, a 25 year Clark County resident originally from Eugene Oregon, Lisa Henry took up photography to document her children as they grew up. During the pandemic, she branched out to landscape & macro while enjoying the beautiful outdoors in our immediate vicinity.

This image was captured in February after a muddy little hike up the west side of the creek to the Yacolt Falls (also known as Big Tree Falls, as it is on Big Tree Creek flowing to the East Fork Lewis River).

Just this year, FOCC won a battle with Clark County at the State Growth Management Hearings Board and WON! Litigation is expensive, but because of your generous contributions we were able to file this successful challenge. The Growth Board’s decision has been appealed, so this battle is not over yet.

If you missed the opportunity to donate this Spring, worry no more! Our donation site is open all year long. Please donate what you can today.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the fun. To see all the photos submitted, click here.
