Pacific Northwest Regional Resilience
WELC is dedicated to place-based environmental advocacy. We live in Eugene, Seattle, Portland, and Bend; and as people who find inspiration in our natural surroundings, we spend our time exploring Puget Sound, the Blue Mountains, Crater Lake, the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, and the lesser-traveled corners of Cascadia.
We partner not only with big, national environmental groups, but local and regional groups as well. We’re proud to call Cascadia Wildlands, Oregon Wild, Pacific Rivers, Spokane Riverkeeper, the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, Sustainable Northwest, Tribal groups and governments, and many more our clients, partners, and friends. Together, we can build power and trust by engaging in a broad suite of community-relevant issues, not just traditional conservation issues.
To ensure Washington’s communities have clean drinking water and healthy ecosystems, we are holding big ag accountable for polluting the state’s rivers and Puget Sound. To achieve sustainable forest management in the Pacific Northwest, we’re leaders in the collaborative Blue Mountains Forest Partners group. And for over a decade we’ve fought for private landowner rights and a more stable climate by beating back the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline.
