The Deschutes Land Trust conserves and cares for the lands and waters that sustain Central Oregon, so local communities and the natural world can flourish together for generations to come. They envision a future where conservation and community care come together to protect, heal, and sustain the natural world around us. Since 1995, the Land Trust has protected more than 18,500 acres in our region for today and tomorrow.

Martha Lussenhop moved to Sisters in 2005 after dreaming of living in the mountains of the West for decades. Martha has a diverse background that includes a master's in zoology, teaching middle school, taking school groups on tours of prairies and woodlands, and leading workshops for children and adults at the Field Museum in Chicago. Martha's home overlooks Indian Ford Meadow Preserve and she is becoming well acquainted with the birds along Indian Ford Creek. Martha leads a variety of walks and hikes for the Land Trust.
