This grove of Oregon myrtle was protected by the Garden Club of Oregon through the "Save the Myrtlewood" campaign and given to the People of Oregon in 1949. The Garden Club started many conservation projects including "Don’t Be a LitterBug!" campaign and Operation Wildflower on state highways. The Oregon myrtle is a highly valued evergreen hardwood that has played a significant role in Oregon’s coastal economies.
