Providing opportunities for all to experience the Pacific Northwest Trail is central to our mission.
We created the Pacific Northwest Trail and advocated for its place in our National Trails System — the gold standard for long-distance trails in America. Today, we strive to build a better PNT and to improve access with trail information and outreach.

Our mission is to protect, connect and restore wildlands and wildlife from the Washington Coast to the British Columbia Rockies. Founded in Bellingham in 1989, our M.O. is simple: connect the big landscapes, restore iconic wildlife and protect our natural heritage for future generations.
Our approximately 20 staffers and half a dozen regular contractors represent nearly 4,000 dues-paying members in Washington, British Columbia and beyond. Our conservation community also includes more than fifteen thousand activists, supporters and online followers.
Bold, innovative and effective, we’ve protected hundreds of thousands of acres of wildlands, supported the recovery of threatened species from wolves to fishers, and touched thousands of lives throughout the greater Northwest. We recognize that for long-term progress, conservation must go hand-in-hand with healthy communities. Our successful campaigns and groundbreaking collaborations help define our effective approach to conservation. Conservationists, farmers, 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!

Warming winters threaten not only the winter sports industry but the entire $887 billion-dollar outdoor recreation economy in the United States. “Climate change shouldn’t be a partisan issue and we know that bipartisan action will be necessary to address our warming winters,” says Mario Molina, Executive Director of Protect Our Winters. Representatives from mountain states have a clear reason to lead this caucus, as warming winters threaten the economies of their districts.”Redeem your tabs to help our Protect Our Winters friends! ⟶
