Public Interest Environmental Law Conference in Eugene

Join Oregon Wild staff, colleagues, and supporters at the premiere environmental law conference in the country! The Public Interest Environmental Law Conference (PIELC), held each year at the University of Oregon Law School in Eugene, brings together attorneys, practioners, students, and activists from around the world to explore panel and keynote topics as interesting and diverse as environmentalism in China to wolf recovery in Oregon. 

The conference is free, open to the public, and a great chance to learn more about all kinds of issues important to Oregon Wild's work and global environmentalism. More info at
