Mission Statement
“Putting Sheep on the Mountain” in Oregon
Oregon FNAWS is vigorously involved in the conservation, propagation, protection and intensive management of wild sheep and mountain goat populations and their habitat in Oregon.
To maintain and enhance Oregon’s wild sheep and mountain goat populations Oregon FNAWS will:
  • Develop and support projects that include transplants and re-establishment of wild sheep and mountain goats into suitable habitat.
  • Enhance habitat through funded projects and hands-on projects.
  • Provide funding for biological studies and research projects affecting wild sheep and mountain goats.
  • Educate and work with the public and appropriate agencies and elected officials about issues impacting wild sheep and mountain goats.
  • Oregon FNAWS believes that predator control is an important tool in maintaining and establishing new populations of wild sheep and mountain goats. Oregon FNAWS will make those views known to appropriate parties.
  • Maintain an active and growing membership that carries out the mantra of “Putting Sheep on the Mountain”. Oregon FNAWS will publish a quarterly newsletter and maintain a website for members, and the general public.
  • Raise funds for sheep and goat projects, disease research, education and other activities. Please see our website for additional information on our annual fundraiser, a dinner and auction held each spring.
  • Oregon FNAWS believes in hunters’ rights and hunters’ responsibilities.
  • Additional activities include record keeping for Oregon sheep and mountain goats with the help of ODFW and Boone and Crocket and Pope and Young, an information site for the health and status of all Oregon populations as well as potential transplant sites. Additionally, Oregon FNAWS expects to partner with other organizations in support of wild sheep and mountain goats.
