Our Mission

Connecting people to the natural world & cultivating a community of environmental stewards working together to build a greener & healthier planet through advocacy, action & education

Got it, thanks!


It's the thread that holds our programming together.


Our on-site farm and gardens provide ample opportunity for sustainable gardening education, while our one-of-a-kind Hopservatory works to conserve dark skies and make astronomy accessible to the general public.

Outside of our own educational programming, we advocate for native pollinator conservation and dark sky practices by working with like-minded organizations such as Dark Sky Oregon and Pollinator Pathway Bend to spread awareness and participate in community projects.
