Our Blog

We at Crag value our deep connections to the people and places of the Pacific Northwest. These connections motivate the work that we do protecting the Pacific Northwest’s communities and natural legacy. Crag’s blog is a space where Crag attorneys, interns and volunteers write more personally about our work. In addition to our regular blog, we have created two blog series that highlight the work and perspectives of our clients and our former volunteers.

Client Voices (formerly The Way We Work) showcases our partner organizations and the work we do together.

Where Are They Now? highlights our former interns and how Crag has helped train the next generation of environmental leaders.

Supporter Spotlight tells stories of some of Crag’s long time supporters.
