Places like Mt. Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks, the San Juan Islands and Mount Saint Helens National Monuments, and our National Forests across the state are a central part of the unique quality of life we all enjoy.- Senator Maria Cantwell
Passion for the outdoors is a tradition in Washington. We have a responsibility not only to honor that heritage, but to continue working to protect our wild places for future generations.- Bob Ferguson, Washington State Attorney General
Beer is over 90% water, and only a fraction of the water required for brewing is represented in the final glass. At any point the water composition or quality can impact the final taste of the beer in a variety of ways.- Pamela Brulotte, Icicle Brewing Company
Protecting Outdoor Places. This is a tradition for REI and others in the outdoor industry. We recognize the need to give back to the land.- Marc Berejka, REI Co-Op
While we undoubtedly don’t agree on everything, we have seized the opportunity to walk forward on common ground into a future beneficial to all.- Dan Rankin, Mayor of Darrington
Washington Wild is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect and restore 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.
