We live in a very beautiful locale
of conifer forests and rugged coastline, where one
might expect clean
sea breezes. Sometimes we have them. But often
we notice industrial emissions, smoke or other pollutants
in the air. We are concerned about the effect these
substances are having on our children, pets, wildlife
and the whole web of life.
We welcome people to join us in working to improve
air quality through education and collective action.
Our mission is to foster awareness, to advocate for
policy, and to mobilize citizen action for clean
air in our communities
on the central Oregon Coast. Our area extends north
to Lincoln City, south to Florence, and east to the
divide of the Coast Range.
By joining together we can be more effective as we
work in our communities to help leave a legacy of
cleaner air for future generations.
The care of the earth is our most ancient and
most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility.
To cherish what remains of it and foster its renewal
is our only hope. –Wendell Berry
