Meet the Presenter- Margaret Treadwell, Central Coast Conservation Program Manager, McKenzie River Trust
Margaret Treadwell is the Central Coast Conservation Program Manager at McKenzie River Trust, based
in the Trust’s Coast Office in Newport, Oregon. She connects with community members, landowners,
and organizations to cultivate land and water conservation opportunities and steer these projects to
completion. She holds a Master of Natural Resources degree from Oregon State University, where her
research focused on coastal wetland restoration and carbon offset projects, and has a professional
background in government, international relations, and consulting.
On the central Oregon coast, conservation partners are collaborating on the protection and long-term
stewardship of 27 acres on Cape Foulweather. This coastal headland figures prominently in Oregon’s
history, is comprised of critical habitats ranging from rocky shores to upland forest, and is at the center of
a regional tribal effort to invigorate cultural traditions. Learn more about this collaboration of the
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, Lincoln County, and McKenzie River Trust to return coastal lands
to indigenous stewardship.
