We work to protect the forests, rivers, lakes, mountains that make our lives in the Inland Northwest so rich.

OUr Mission

We preserve and revitalize Inland Northwest forests, water, and wildlife through advocacy, education, effective action, and community engagement.

We collaborate with a broad range of interested parties to seek smart and mutually respectful solutions to environment and health issues.

We’re enriched by the beauty of nature.

We’re energized by the recreational opportunities it affords. And we’re inspired to preserve its legacy for future generations.


Our Vision

We envision a day when the forests of the Inland Northwest are protected for a diversity of wildlife species and provide our communities with a source of plentiful clean water.

We envision a public that understands the importance of protecting forests and water from the top of the mountains to the tap.

We envision a Spokane River that supports native fish and is safe for people to recreate and fish in.

We envision a community that is resilient and prepared for climate change and are careful stewards of our sole source aquifer.
