About MorganMorgan Gratz-Weiser is the Legislative Director for Oregon Environmental Council
Morgan joined OEC after working in the Oregon Legislature in the Senate Majority Office and as Chief of Staff to Senator Richard Devlin. During this time she focused primarily on state budget policy, which included work on environment and natural resources, healthcare, housing, and education.
Morgan came to Oregon to attend Willamette University, graduating with a B.A. in Environmental Science and Geography, and went on to earn a Masters of Studies of Law from Lewis & Clark Law with an emphasis on Environment, Natural Resource, and Energy Law. Subsequently, she worked and volunteered with a number of environmental non-profits before starting in the Legislature.
Growing up in rural Northern California, Morgan’s passion for the environment started as a kid with family rafting and backpacking trips, activities she actively purses today. These experiences shape her desire to protect our water systems, forests, and air quality. She is proud to call Oregon home, and enjoys adventuring the state from the Steens to the Wallowas, and back along the Columbia Gorge.
I work to Protect Oregon because…
Oregon is unique in having all the main geographic features all in one state, from deserts to rainforests to beaches to the deepest lake and river gorge in North America. We must do our best to protect and conserve our natural resources for the beauty of our state and the sustainability of our communities.
