It's Your Oregon: Maggie Collins It's Your Oregon: Maggie Collins
Little did I know what was in store in January 1973, when I walked into OEC’s SW Water Street office. Judie (Neilson) Hansen was efficiently managing in a small area full of mis-matched furniture. I explained that Oregon Environmental Council sounded like a good place to volunteer because “environmental” was part of its name. I went away from that first encounter with a copy of Senate Bill 100, which I read that night in a toy-cluttered NE Portland living room after my preschoolers were tucked in.

You Are Part of a Community

Back in 1968, we started out as a group of ordinary citizens that came together to form Oregon Environmental Council. We were PTA and garden club members, outdoor enthusiasts, conservationists and other folks who believed they could get more done to protect the legacy of a clean and healthy Oregon by working together. We told stories, exchanged ideas, and thought about how we could help keep this place special. We invited new folks to join in the discussion, and to have a say in the process. OEC is the place where all Oregonians can collaborate and take action to protect and enhance our quality of life. Join the discussion!
