CEA has been outspoken in the need to protect Eugene's rare gem, the Amazon Headwaters forest, one of the last patches of native forest left inside the city's Urban Growth Boundary. To protect Amazon Headwaters, CEA has led public hikes, urged elected officials, written opinion pieces in local newspapers and assisted with the acquisition of grant money.

In 2008, the "Green" parcel comprising 1/2 of Amazon Headwaters forest was purchased by the city of Eugene as protected parkland.

The "Beverly" parcel is still threatened by imminent development.
