We are citizens on the central Oregon Coast who are passionate about clean air.

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
