The Cascadia Bioregion is the lush, forested region extending from northern California to southcentral Alaska. Cascadia Wildlands works within this bioregion (and the U.S.) where immediate threats to wild places are highest. Currently, these places are Oregon and southeast Alaska.
Decades of aggressive clearcutting have destroyed more than 80% of the original old-growth forests that once blanketed the Northwest. And year after year, our government plans and subsidizes public forest destruction for the profit of private timber companies.
Cascadia Wildlands uses a combination of education, organizing, outreach, agitation, litigation, advocacy, and collaboration to defend wild places and promote sustainable, restoration-based forestry. We focus on specific projects and campaigns that achieve tangible, on-the-ground results. When it comes to protecting Cascadia, we deliver.
