Located in the heart of downtown Bend, The Environmental Center offers a wonderful meeting space for your next event. Each year, we host over 500 meetings, workshops, trainings, group or club programs, parties, wedding receptions and holiday celebrations.
We rent out two different event spaces seven days a week during daytime and evening hours. Both rooms come equipped with tables and chairs, white boards and projector screens. (A projector and sound system are available to rent for a small fee.) Between the two rooms is a small lobby (~150 sq. ft.), a small kitchen and two bathrooms near the rear entrance. Wi-fi is available throughout the building.
Our grounds are landscaped with grass, trees, native plants, a small patio, a picnic table in the shade, and a Learning Garden adjacent to our building. A large, shaded deck (~300 sq. ft.) is great for outdoor events from late spring through early fall. The garden is also available to rent, with several picnic tables and benches and some shaded areas.
Our building is mostly surrounded by 2-hour parking. If this doesn’t suit your needs, there is paid parking in the lot next to our garden or in the downtown parking garage. You can also park in the residential neighborhood nearby.
