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.

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