• Environmental Learning Center at CCC 

    Environmental Learning CenterThe John Inskeep Environmental Learning Center (ELC) in Oregon City is a great place for children, families and adults to explore the outdoors and learn more about watersheds through hands-on activities and environmental education.

    The ELC is a five-acre site located on the Clackamas Community College Oregon City campus. Newel Creek bubbles to life here, then flows to the Willamette River through the 1,800-acre Newell Creek watershed, the largest intact green space in the South Metro area.

    At the ELC, you can explore trails, discover native plants and wildlife, or observe the stars at the Haggart Observatory. We offer interactive environmental education school programs for elementary-age students, as well as professional development workshops for teachers.The John Inskeep Environmental Learning Center site is open daily from dawn to dusk. For more information, please call 503-594-3696.

    What's next for the ELC?

    Newell Creek Headwaters will undergo an ambitious redevelopment project that will transform the site into a regionally important outdoor learning laboratory, demonstration project location, and natural area that showcases innovations in stormwater management, native habitat restoration and sustainable living practices.

    ELC_at_CCC_300x200Metro has provided a significant grant to seed the project and the CCC Foundation is committed to raising $1.7 million in matching funds to complete the work. To learn more about the project and the Foundation's fundraising campaign, please visit give.clackamas/headwaters. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the College’s 50th Anniversary in May 2016, with completion of the project set for 2017.
