The geographic center for O4SR is Salem so that we can capture a large region of Oregon using Meetup, which only allows searches up to 100 miles away from your location...

Established in 1994, O4SR is a nonprofit corporation formed to promote science and reason. We seek to develop rational thought and action through the application of scientific methods and critical thinking.


# Educate the public with outreach activities and free public lectures.

# Facilitate social contacts among scientific skeptics by hosting regular social gatherings.

# Examine testable pseudoscientific and paranormal claims.

# Serve as a skeptical resource on questionable claims and science/pseudoscience for local/regional media.

# Interact with other skeptics and scientific skeptic groups globally through e-mail and website contacts.

# Spread critical thinking skills and a science-based worldview.
