To connect people to the natural world and cultivate a community of environmental stewards working together to build a greener and healthier planet through advocacy, action and education.

A broad and dynamic organization, Worthy Environmental focuses on local education and advocacy efforts to create a more sustainable future. We partner with academic institutions to support research surrounding the conservation and restoration of wild land habitats in the face of species extinction and climate change.

Got it, thanks!

Our Story

Beginning as a small organization offering education in sustainable gardening, we have grown to include the only professional observatory within Bend's city limits, a small-scale regenerative farm and native plant gardens that serve as classrooms for natural science education. We offer free or low-cost programs that educate our community on everything from astronomy and dark sky practices to pollinator conservation and sustainable food growing.

Our employees are active advocates for these chosen causes, serving on local boards to help influence progress in the community. See what we're working on below!
