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 restoration projects as well as wide-reaching advocacy efforts to create a more sustainable future. We partner with academic institutions to initiate and support research surrounding the conservation and restoration of wild land habitats in the face of species extinction and climate change.
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, a native plant nursery and an active conservation program completing on-the-ground projects throughout the west.
These essential programs have expanded the scope and impact of Worthy Environmental well beyond the original vision, but our mission remains the same. We're passionate about the work we do and look forward to the future we can all create together.
