To celebrate Umpqua’s 45th Birthday in 2017, Umpqua has promised a donation of $45,000 to preservation efforts in the Tongass National Forest. In partnership with Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska, Trout Unlimited and the American Salmon Forest Coalition, the money will be spent on education and awareness programs as well as spawning and rearing habitat preservation in the Tongass. For their last fundraising push, Umpqua is hosting a month long virtual auction on the HandBid app with the title “Tied for Tongass.” The auction includes Umpqua items, YETI coolers, Scientific Angler gear and the main event: Original hand tied patterns from Umpqua Signature Tyers.
