Cascadia Wildlands Project

The Cascadia Wildlands Project educates, organizes, and agitates to protect the ecological integrity of the Cascadia Bioregion. The future it works toward includes vast hills and valleys of old-growth forests, rivers full of salmon, wolves howling in the mountains, and vibrant communities sustained by these unique landscapes.

Cascadia Wildlands Project was a Brainerd Foundation grantee from 2003 to 2013.
