Lush forests and lively waters
The outdoor experiences in Washington are varied and vibrant. Here, you can fly fish the trout-rich waters of the Yakima River, and within a few hours, hike through an old growth rainforest so verdant and full of life that it completely blocks out the noise of the outside world. Wildlife like wolverine, lynx and salmon depend on these lands, too.
Though Washingtonians love the wildlands in their backyard, these places are not exempt from the pressures of looming development. The threats range from mining in the Methow Valley, the eastern gateway to North Cascades National Park, to attacks on roadless lands in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. We'll need your help to protect Washington’s public lands for future generations to enjoy.
