Southeast Neighbors

Working together to preserve the livability of our most
immediate surroundings, for all the people and creatures
therein, and for generations to come.

Please help save Eugene's threatened Pileated Woodpeckers
and Amazon Creek Otters! Support headwaters stewardship
and upland wildlife habitat protection.

Please help stop destructive infill development. Support
the South Hills Study to help continue carbon sequestration
in our heritage forest and woodlands.

Help us learn to create dense mixed-use redevelopment in
existing commercial areas to reduce our community's car-
driving carbon footprint, and preserve our current UGB.
