The Corvallis Environmental Center (CEC) is a 501c3 that was founded in 1994 as a grassroots effort to take action on a number of environmental issues. For over 20 years the CEC has been one of the keystones of our local community. Through programs focused on environmental literacy, food and farming education, local food security, energy conservation and climate action, the CEC has established itself as a regional leader in the environmental movement.
Our mission is to educate, engage, and inspire people to get involved in creating a healthy, sustainable community. The CEC fills an important niche in our community–every year we directly reach more than 15,000 people through the activities of core program areas.
