Join Us

OEC members

Back in 1968, a group of ordinary citizens came together to form the Oregon Environmental Council. These first members of OEC believed they could get more done to protect the legacy of a clean and healthy Oregon by working together. For over four decades our members have been key to our success. Your dedication inspires us to work hard every day and to protect Oregon’s unique quality of life.

From the Bottle Bill to the Toxic Free Kids Act, we’ve made substantial strides in protecting Oregon’s air, water and climate, and we’re keeping Oregon a healthy place for kids to grow up. This has all been possible because of the support of Oregonians like you.  Will you join us today and become an OEC member? It’s your Oregon!


From Ashland to ZigZag and everywhere in between, our members help us protect this beautiful place we call home.  That’s why we celebrate our members with:

  • 10% discount off kombucha-on-tap and loose leaf tea from any Townshend’s Teahouse in Oregon
  • Free wine tastings at wineries throughout Oregon:
  • Invitations to special members-only events
  • Discount ticket pricing for all OEC public events
  • Insider campaign previews–for members only!
  • OEC’s print news magazine, It’s Your Oregon (twice annually)
