Clackamas Community College would like to invite you to be a part of a community-wide effort to help preserve and maintain what has long been a gem on the Oregon City Campus – the Environmental Learning Center.

Thanks to a Metro Nature in Neighborhood grant, community members and the College, the Headwaters of Newell Creek Restoration Project at the Environmental Learning Center will help redevelop the 5-acre site into a regionally significant outdoor learning laboratory that will showcase innovation in storm water management, landscape design and sustainable living practices.

The ELC Sustainability Endowment will ensure that the site once restored will be maintained for generations to come.
