Our Story

Our mission is to embed sustainability into daily life in Central Oregon. To us, that means driving local change that makes a world of difference.

The Environmental Center was born to inspire locals to change the world and preserve our spectacular local landscape. Thirty years ago, we started with a handful of people and a building in the center of the community. Since 1988, we’ve brought people, business and government together to nurture lasting change that we can all be proud of.
