The Wild

Preserving the Wild

From the dry pine forests of Central Oregon to the coastal temperate rainforests of the Tongass in Southeast Alaska, we work with a diverse coalition of conservation clients in Oregon, Washington and Alaska to advocate for sound forest management, sustainable outdoor recreation, and restoration of native fish and wildlife populations.  Crag’s first case was to work with local community and conservation groups to protect the north side of Mt. Hood. Since then, we have expanded our efforts to protect public lands, wildlife, and native fish across the Pacific Northwest.
