The Xerces Society continues to grow, and we wanted to let you know that we have moved into a larger office space.

The move was a great upheaval, but well worth it. Our new office is significantly larger and gives Xerces staff a greatly improved working environment, as well as room for continued expansion. From our new office we will be able to work even more effectively to speak out on behalf of the animals we love and better protect their habitats.

Please send all mail to our new address:


628 NE Broadway, Ste 200

Portland, OR 97232-1324


Our other contact information, such as telephone, fax and, email, has remained the same.


A change like this doesn't happen very often; we were in our previous office for seventeen years. We thank John Laursen, Wings designer and a long-time friend of the Society, for being such an accommodating landlord throughout these years.


The fact that this move has happened as we prepare to celebrate the Society's 40th birthday is symbolic of the long-term success of the organization, and testament to the tireless efforts of early volunteers and prior staff. We want to thank everybody who has contributed to the Society's work over the past four decades. The combined support from our partners, funders, and individual members has been central to our stability, allowing us the opportunity to expand and make this exciting move. We look forward to seeing you at our new office!
