Professional Development at the Environmental Learning Center

Earn CEUs at the ELC

If you're looking for a fun and convenient way to broaden your knowledge around environmental issues and earn continuing education units (CEUs), the Environmental Learning Center at Clackamas Community College is here to help. We offer a variety of short courses designed to give professionals hands-on experience while learning from experts in the field.

Short course topics will include areas related to stormwater management, wetland/river restoration and ecology, and more. Our rustic, yet comfortable, classrooms provide an excellent learning environment in the middle of a recently restored wetland.

  • Only minutes from downtown Oregon City
  • Free and open parking
  • Retreat-like feel close to the city
  • Conveniently located off Interstate-205
