Ecology Center is Alive and Well at Shasta Visions
The Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center recently relocated to 211 North Mt. Shasta Boulevard, Suite 333, in downtown Mt. Shasta, accepting the invitation to share the offices of Shasta Visions, a local business whose Planet Earth Art aims “to inspire caring for the world.”
The move gives the Ecology Center room for operations and allows the organization to focus resources on its mission “to honor, protect and restore our world-renowned mountain environment,” on which it has acted for over three decades through numerous campaigns and projects. Current programs include Community Fire Resiliency, Medicine Lake Highlands and Aquifer Campaign, Pollinator Habitat Restoration, Headwaters Protection, Honor Our Mountain (H.O.M.E.) Stewardship Project, and Community Education.
The Ecology Center will use other venues for events, such as the upcoming Giving Tuesday Watch Party, which will be held December 3rd, 2019 from 4-8pm at ExperShare, 211 North Mt. Shasta Boulevard, on the first floor.
“The harmony of our goals makes this a fitting move,” said Ecology Center board president and Shasta Visions owner Richard Lucas. Shasta Visions, whose clients include Greenpeace, the United Nations, The Nobel Peace Center, and National Geographic as well as museums and non-profit peace and environmental organizations throughout the world, has also seen its products used to honor such notables as astronauts Buzz Aldrin and John Glenn.
“After three decades of our presence here, the Ecology Center continues to be a voice for many who value our pristine environment and the quality of life that is such a benefit to all who live and visit here,” said Michelle Berditschevsky, who founded the Ecology Center in 1988 in response to a proposal that would have commercialized a large area of Mount Shasta near Panther Meadows. “We’re deeply grateful to Shasta Visions for sharing their office with our organization.”
