Washington’s national forests and national parks are part of the amazing natural heritage we eagerly pass on to future generations. Washington Wild supports sound management of these public lands that support healthy ecosystems, natural beauty and recreational opportunities. While much of our national parks are protected as Wilderness, national forests are mandated to consider multiple uses including mining, logging, ranching and motorized off-road vehicle use.

We work with coalition partners to oppose mining, logging and management decisions that threaten key conservation, recreation or wildlife values. As an organization we also prioritize advocating to promote and restore recreational access to the wild places we work so hard to protect. We engage a diverse group of stakeholders and mobilize individuals to comment on these proposals. You can hear some of their opinions directly by checking out our Conservation Voices section.
