What the community is saying.
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
Protecting and conserving our natural gems is not the prerogative of any one party.- Congressman Dave Reichert
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
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
The strong response from business leaders in support of protecting local Wilderness and public lands through Washington Wild is not a philanthropic act. It is rooted in sound economics and good business.- Brad Tilden
Washington Wild is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is defend, 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.
