New Board Members: Welcome to OEC!

For 2017, Oregon Environmental Council is thrilled to welcome four new professionals to our board of directors. From an attorney, to a serial entrepreneur –  to a policy pro and a pediatric specialist – our four new members work across the state (and world) advocating on behalf of all

We are so glad they’re a part of the OEC community. Welcome!

Chris Hearn

Chis spent every summer camping outdoors between age the ages of 15 and 25. Before moving to Oregon in 1992, Chris attended the University of California San Diego, the University of California’s Hastings College of Law, clerked for a federal judge in Denver, and worked as a litigation attorney for two large southern California law firms.

A proponent of environmental causes and public service, Chris served on Ashland City Council, Ashland Planning Commission, Ashland Forest Lands Commission, and co-founded the Ashland Woodlands & Trails Association. Chris was the first southern Oregon attorney to chair the Oregon State Bar’s Real Estate and Land Use Section in 2012; and currently serves on the Bear Creek Greenway Foundation Board.

Chris is an attorney-shareholder at the Ashland law firm of Davis, Hearn, Anderson & Turner, PC. He enjoys rafting the Lower Rogue River’s Wild & Scenic section annually with his family, and commuting to the office on his crowd-funded Sondors e-bike.
