Senior Conservation Advocate Chandra LeGue knows the importance of teamwork. Since November of 2003, Chandra has been collaborating with conservation groups, federal land managers, and local stakeholders to promote Oregon Wild's vision for Oregon's public forest lands.
Utilizing her two decades of experience engaging in public forest management, working with partner organizations, leading hikes, and otherwise engaging the public in Oregon Wild's work, Chandra helps support our major campaigns and development by connecting people to the places Oregon Wild works to protect and conserve .
Working from Oregon Wild's Eugene office, Chandra is especially proud of her work to save Oregon's remaining old-growth forests. "These forests provide clean water and air, places for wildlife and fish, the scenic beauty that attracted me to the area, and my favorite places to hike and explore. We've destroyed enough of these amazing forests, and I'm very proud of our vision for restoring the forests that have already been damaged." In fact, she's written a book for Oregon Wild on hiking Oregon's Ancient Forests!
In her personal life, Chandra enjoys cooking, snuggling with her cats, spending time with her family, and exploring Oregon.
