- Provided opportunities for scientists, researchers, and students from Oregon State University, Linfield College, and University of Oregon (to name a few) to learn from Westwind’s unique ecological and scientific values
- Engaged hundreds of volunteer stewards in conservation work such as removing invasive plants, tending the native plant nursery, and performing beach and river clean-ups.

Cheers to another great year!
