What is one thing you love about Oregon or about your community in Oregon?

  • Roz: We live in a small coastal town where neighbors care and look out for one another.
  • Sarah: I love the block where my family lives.  Our neighbors look out for each, hold celebrations together, and always find things to laugh about with each other.
  • Tiff: I live in Beaverton, Oregon and what I love about my community is the diversity in my neighborhood. It's reflected in the food options around the block, my neighbors who I see are from different parts of the world, different generations and the spaces that encourage the diversity from the parks and the libraries.
  • Jacque: Natural beauty -- rivers, lakes, ocean, streams, rainfall, and everything those water systems are connected to. 
  • Eliot: I love mountains! From my road I can see the High Siskiyous in northern California. I love watching them gather snow in the winter.
  • Wendy: The McKenzie River, especially around Eagle Rockock.
