About the Environmental Learning Center

The Environmental Learning Center has a rich history as an educational resource for Clackamas Community College, regional schools, industry and the community. Located on the former site of a Smucker's processing plant, the center was created to demonstrate what people could do to reclaim industrial sites, address stormwater issues and restore wildlife habitats in urban areas. Each year thousands of people visit to explore the 5-acre site and learn about watershed health. The site serves as an important stormwater facility for the college campus and provides critical wetland habitat for resident and migratory birds, such as the great blue heron, wood duck and merganser.

OREGON CITY – Clackamas Community College’s nursing program has received initial accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). This achievement underscores CCC's commitment to providing high-quality education and training for future nurses.

ACEN accreditation indicates that a nursing program has clear and appropriate educational objectives and is working to achieve the objectives.
