Our work for incredible Northwest forests

Since 1989, our Forest Field Program has worked to ecologically restore our national forests.
A flagship program since our founding, we advance the use of the latest scientific research and engage collaboratively with other stakeholders to promote landscape-scale restoration of forests and watersheds. Check out the map below to learn more about some of the important forest protection efforts we’ve led, as well as restoration projects we’ve collaborated on!
We maintain forest staffers for the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie, Okanogan-Wenatchee and Colville national forests. Our Central Cascades Watersheds Restoration program also conducts focused work between the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and Mount Rainier.
Our Forest Field Program works both on the ground, engaging volunteers through habitat restoration events, as well as at the policy level, informing forestry projects and promoting pro-forest policies. In addition, we’re among the few regional groups that track forestry projects to completion on-the-ground through our Forest Watch field work. Our staffers also track projects on nearby state forests, including State Trust Lands.
