Crag Law Center works for conservation groups and local people throughout the Pacific Northwest on matters of public interest. As a result, our work is frequently covered in a variety of local, regional papers, wire services, and blogs. The most current news is reported on the Crag Blog and older Blog postings will regularly be moved to this page as new items replace them.
Supporters and people who request to be on our mailing list receive the twice annual “A View of the Summit,” copies of which are posted on our website three months after initial publication. You can also sign up for our email newsletter or our twice yearly, two-page “Crag Cairn” to receive less frequent updates. You can also sign here for our “Crag eZine,” which is the Crag Law Center’s email information service.
