Programs

  • American Alps

    As we celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the North Cascades National Park, it is time to address critical areas that were left out of the original park. Scenic landscapes, like those around Liberty Bell, Rainy Pass, Snowy Lakes, Cutthroat Pass, and the Cascade River were excluded from the park. Lowland wildlife habitats and pristine rivers and streams remain outside park boundaries. The North Cascades Conservation Council wants to continue the legacy of conservation that inspired the North Cascades National Park. We need your help to complete the park.

  • Wilderness Protection

    It is imperative that North Cascades Conservation Council, its grassroots conservation partners, and other conservation groups be in a position to take advantage of the groundswell of public support for environmental protection. To that end, NCCC is actively working on National Park and Wilderness additions. The American Alps Legacy Project is currently underway, and we are working with partners across the conservation community to realize a vision of North Cascades National Park with boundaries that are based on watershed/ecology.

  • Wildlife Conservation

    The North Cascades Conservation Council has created the North Cascades Wildlife Action Network to enable concerned citizens to speak out about grizzly bear and wolf conservation. Network members advocated for policy changes, including letters to elected officials promoting grizzly bear EIS funding and comments to WDFW on the Wolf Conservation and Management Plan.

  • Forest & Watershed Protection

    NCCC has been working intensively to raise public awareness of the importance of North Cascades forests through numerous media articles. NCCC is also a founding member of, and leading contributor to the “Washington Watershed Restoration Initiative,” (WWRI) which seeks to address the serious problems presented by thousands of miles of crumbling logging roads on National Forest lands in the Cascades.
