Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute, Inc. Overview
Programs: The Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute (PCEI) was established in 1986 by citizens of the Palouse Prairie in reaction to local and international environmental issues. Since then, we have actively engaged our community in issues of public health, waste and recycling, fish & wildlife habitat, water quality, sustainable agriculture and pesticide use, transportation, alternative energy, and ground water. PCEI has a history of capitalizing on immediate environmental issues and converting them into educational opportunities for community growth and improvement. As a result, we were recognized as a Founder of a New Northwest by sustainable Northwest, Oregon Solutions, and the Governor of Oregon in 2000. Current programmatic focus areas are Watershed Restoration, Alternative Transportation, Community Gardening, and Environmental Education.
