Who we are

Environment Oregon is a statewide, citizen-based environmental advocacy organization. Our professional staff combines independent research, practical ideas and tough-minded advocacy to overcome the opposition of powerful special interests and win real results for Oregon’s environment. Environment Oregon draws on 30 years of success in tackling our state's top environmental problems.



What we do

Whether it’s exploring our rocky coast, hiking around Crater Lake, or enjoying a special place closer to home, Oregon’s natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the values we share are too often threatened. 

We research the issues and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our reports, news conferences and interviews with reporters, we help the media cover environmental issues in ways that make sense. Our canvassers meet citizens where they are — starting conversations in public places or going to door-to-door — explaining our mission while raising awareness and funds for environmental protection.

When decisions are being made about our environment, our elected officials hear plenty from the oil companies, developers and other powerful interests. We speak up for our environment, making our case to public officials and helping you make your voice heard when it matters most. From environmentalists to outdoor enthusiasts, clergy to scientists, families to business owners, we all have a stake in a cleaner, healthier future.
