In 2012, the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission (OFWC) adopted rules to implement Oregon’s first Habitat Conservation Stamp. The stamp is not required for any activity, but provides an opportunity for the public to give financial support for native fish and wildlife conservation in Oregon. Revenue from the sale of stamps, art prints, and other related promotional materials are directed to the conservation of high priority Strategy Species and Strategy Habitats.

The winner of the 2019 Habitat Conservation Stamp art contest was Karin Wares of Medford, OR with a painting of the Franklin’s Bumble Bee. If you would like to support the Conservation Program, collector’s stamps and signed art prints are available for purchase under the Conservation section on ODFW.com. Art prints are also available for the: Western Meadowlark, Pygmy Rabbit, Ferruginous Hawk, Pallid Bat, Tufted Puffin, Western Painted Turtle, Kit Fox.
