Conservation Voices

What the community is saying.

Washington Wild is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect wild lands and waters in Washington State through advocacy, education, and civic engagement. Founded in 1979 as the Washington Wilderness Coalition, Washington Wild has been instrumental in protecting nearly 3 million acres of Wilderness in Washington State.

We believe that public lands are a public issue. By educating, empowering, and mobilizing our communities, Washington Wild builds powerful grassroots networks that help protect and restore wild lands throughout the state. Our supporters share our philosophy that Washington’s remaining wild lands have intrinsic value and are essential to our quality of life.
