Consider making a donation to the Central Oregon Environmental Center as part of your Salmon Run experience! Here are some reasons why: A healthy environment is essential for life to thrive on planet earth. At The Environmental Center, we believe that changing how we live, work, play and learn is essential to ensuring that healthy environment. Our mission is to embed sustainability into daily life in Central Oregon. We teach children about enjoying and protecting our natural world, show businesses how to reduce waste and energy use, and advocate for policy changes that support a sustainable future. We want a community where our grandchildren can play outside in our spectacular local landscape, walk and ride their bikes in safe neighborhoods, and work in fulfilling careers that restore environmental quality.
