Since 1979, Washington Wild has played an invaluable role in permanently protecting nearly three million acres of Wilderness throughout Washington State. We bring people together in the vigorous defense of our remaining wild forests, waters, and wildlife. By educating, empowering and mobilizing our communities, Washington Wild builds powerful grassroots networks that help protect wild lands and waters throughout the state.
Our Mission: Washington Wild defends, protects and restores wild lands and waters in Washington State through advocacy, education and civic engagement.
Washington Wild is a member-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
