The Clarence Environment Centre is located in Skinner Street, South Grafton on the Clarence River in the heart of the Clarence Valley.
The Clarence Environment Centre was formed by local residents in 1989 in response to pressures by the Japanese owned Daishowa multi-national woodchopping company to establish a Pulp and Paper Mill on the Clarence River. The ensuing campaign to stop the mill was successful and the proposal was officially shelved by the then NSW government early in 1990. Over the years the CEC has campaigned on a wide range of environmental issues which affect the valley.
The CEC aims to promote, through education, the conservation, protection and betterment of the natural and social environment along sound social and ecological principles and guidelines.
