Our Work

Keeping the Northwest Wild since 1989, we protect, connect and restore wildlands and wildlife from the Washington Coast to the British Columbia Rockies.

We recognize that for long-term progress, conservation must go hand-in-hand with healthy, prosperous, and equitable communities. 

We’re restoring wildlands and wildlife by working with diverse stakeholders. Through dialogue, we find common ground and collaborative solutions for challenging issues including habitat corridors, wilderness conservation, forest restoration, and endangered species recovery across our region.

Conservationists, farmers, Indigenous and First Nations peoples, hikers and climbers, hunters and anglers—we all share a love for wildness, wild animals, and careful stewardship of the natural legacy we leave for generations to come. We know that by working together, we’re building a stronger, wilder future in the Pacific Northwest!
