what we do

Our work looks different from project-to-project, but if you’re working on a project at the intersection of community health equity and the outdoors, we’ve got you covered! Our portfolio includes national projects using green infrastructure to mitigate climate change impacts, collaborations with state government agencies and community-based organizations to make Oregon State Parks more accessible, and a number of other local partnerships focused on improving health and the environment. The Oregon Health and Outdoors Initiative offers a wide variety of services to health workers, outdoor partners, and communities throughout the state of Oregon. If you're looking to advance health equity around the state and need a partner to support you, we want to help you achieve your vision. Here are a few of the services we offer:
