Welcome to Bend!

Hi again! Thanks for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you’re enjoying all that Bend has to offer so far. Don’t forget to cut out our handy checklist, and put those Green Spot coupons to use!

Win a Wanderlust Tours for two, plus $100 to Crux Fermentation Project! (Details below)

Since you’re new here, we want to share with you some of Central Oregon’s most beautiful landscapes… and, of course, our craft beer! In order to win, we just ask that you subscribe to “Living the Green,” a go-to enewsletter stocked full of great information, resources and upcoming events. We hope you’ll find our emails helpful and inspiring, but don’t worry – if your inbox is starting to look a little scary, you can unsubscribe at any time.

Please fill out this entire form for your chance to win the prize! Yes, we already have your address – but info is required in order to select and confirm an eligible winner. We won’t share your personal information. 


And since you’re already here, we encourage you to click around our website to learn more about The Environmental Center. We believe that local change can make a world of difference. Our programs are designed to educate kids, build community, and help reduce waste and shift to renewable energy. And we hope you’ll feel empowered to get involved and participate in making the place we love, the place we love!

We host Happy Hour in the Garden in our learning garden every Tuesday from 4-6pm. This would be the perfect time to swing by and say hello! Get your hands dirty while volunteering in our garden, and we’ll provide local beer or kombucha during the event.

We can’t wait to meet you.


Paddle the glassy waters of a spectacular mountain lake – you’re sure to be inspired by the beauty of central Oregon. This tour with Wanderlust Tours tours include gear, transportation, and an incredible naturalist guide. Then head over to Crux Fermentation Project, one of Bend’s best breweries, for dinner and drinks with a spectacular view of the mountains.

Total value of prize package: $250
