Finding Sanctuary on the North Umpqua: A Veteran’s Legacy

Sanctuary. There are two primary definitions. One meaning a place of refuge or safety. The other more specifically defined as a protected natural space. Ninety-five year old World War II veteran Frank Moore knows that the two definitions are not mutually exclusive, that sanctuary as a protected natural space is also a place of refuge, safety, and even healing. After the war, Frank found healing by fly fishing the North Umpqua River. He and his wife, Jeanne, have spent their lives as stewards to the North Umpqua, instilling a legacy of conservation to preserve and cherish our natural sanctuaries for the health of the rivers and the fish, and for our own human mental health. #SaveSanctuaries
