Our Mission

To protect and preserve the North Cascades’ scenic, scientific, recreational, educational, and wilderness values.

We actively support:

  • Expanding the North Cascades National Park
  • Establishing new Wilderness Areas
  • Protecting wildlife
  • Promoting environmentally sound recreational use in wild areas
  • Protecting old-growth forests

We take action to:

  • Stop damaging timber sales
  • Supporting responsible forest management
  • Protecting forestlands from conversion to non-forest uses

We are an independent, all-volunteer organization whose work is carried out by our board and 200+ members.

We accept donations, but no sponsorships, in order to maintain our independence.
