Restoration of ELC Timeline

As a part of the bond Projects, storm water improvements will be required across the Oregon City Campus. These improvements will strengthen the vitality of the headwaters of Newell Creek Canyon, which flow through the Environmental Learning Center (ELC). Concurrent with these improvements, Clackamas Community College will undertake a restoration project of the ELC that will be funded partially by a grant secured from Metro as well as $1.7 million in funds to be raised by the CCC Foundation.
These renovations will include community space improvements, parking lot renovations, native plant restoration, walking trail adjustments and many other college and community initiatives. Yost Grube Hall Architecture was selected as the firm designing aspects of these projects.
The Newell Creek Headwaters Restoration Project Ceremony as well as guided natural area tours will kick off CCC’s 50th Birthday celebration May 21, 2016, with restoration beginning summer 2017.
