Our Salmon Run beneficiary is The Environmental Center. In the past 10 years, the Salmon Run has raised over $15,000 for the Center’s programs.

For over 30 years, The Environmental Center has inspired local action for a healthier planet. Our work began with a handful of people and a building in the center of Bend. Today, we are a regional hub of environmental education, engagement, and action. In collaboration with our partners and community members, we’re at the heart of important initiatives that are defining and shaping this place we call home.

Our mission is to embed sustainability in the daily lives of Central Oregonians. Each day, our team works to advance a healthy, vibrant place to live, work and play – for all of us today and for future generations to inherit. Our work focuses on:

Advocating for a Better Future We advocate for local policies and infrastructure that protect the environment and support economic success. From council chambers to classrooms, we collaborate with others to prioritize climate action and equitable solutions in the face of rapid growth and developmet. 

Educating and Empowering Youth Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. We provide the education and leadership development they need to be life-long stewards.

Embedding Sustainable Behavior Every individual, family and business has the ability to make a positive impact on the community. From waste to energy to transportation, our work brings people together to drive meaningful, lasting change.

Engaging the Whole Community An effective environmental movement is accessible to and reflects all people and perspectives. We are committed to engaging as many people as possible in our mission.
