A new design for Oregon salmon license plates will be available to vehicle owners September 1, 2021, and the money from plate sales will go toward salmon habitat and restoration.

The salmon plate VIP list auction opens for bids Tuesday, July 20. All bids must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 30. The Oregon Conservation Partnership is working with habitat-related nonprofit organizations to auction off spots for low-numbered plates, i.e. SM00001 through SM00020, using eBay.
