Cope Environmental Center is here to help our community make sense of sustainability.  This commitment to the environment stems from a long tradition of environmental stewardship dating back to pre-organization days.  Our founders, Jim & Helen Cope and Fran Parks made conservation a  way of life and dedicated themselves to teaching others the importance of sustainability.  We invite you to explore our rich history, learn about our facilities, and meet the people who work every day to keep our founder’s mission alive and well.  We also encourage you to take a moment to read about our next steps and give us your feedback via our blog!

Our Mission is to promote the sustainable use of the earth’s resources through education, demonstration and research.

Our Vision is to inspire and challenge individuals and communities to achieve ecologically sustainable lifestyles to secure a sustainable future for all life on earth.
