Oregon Field Guide Considers Oregon Land Use

In 25 seasons, OPB's Oregon Field Guide program has taken viewers to every corner of the state. Recently, the program chose to examine a key force behind the beautiful landscapes and thriving communities the program has visited: land use planning.

The program explores how four decades of land use have protected Oregon farmland and grown an industry, despite constant threat of repeal or weakening. Meanwhile, Oregon's cities have remained attractive and livable as the state's population has grown.

Watch the ten-minute program below:

1000 Friends is proud to have played a role in the story of Oregon land use successes. With the help of our members, we will continue working to ensure the program keeps Oregon beautiful, productive, and healthy for another forty years and beyond.
