What N3C is working on

NCCC (The North Cascades Conservation Council) is working on more numerous, promising, and important issues than at any time in its past 51 years. Fortunately, we have a talented board of directors vitally interested in each and every issue.

The Glacier Peak Wilderness was one of the first major accomplishments of N3C.

The following would be included among these issues:
  • Promoting expansion of North Cascades National Park with the American Alps Legacy Project.
  • Leading efforts to establish/add to three new Wilderness Areas (Seven Rivers, Alpine Lakes additions, Mt. Baker Wilderness additions).
  • In the forefront of efforts to support wildlife conservation with keystone issues being to retain the small number of gray wolves coming into eastern Washington and to protect hte few grizzly bears in the northeast Cascade Mountains.
  • Promote environmentally sound motorized recreational use in wild areas, where irresponsible use is threatening fish and wildlife habitat.
  • Taking step to stop damaging timber sales, protect old growth trees and pushing to remove unnecessary roads.
All the above issues require your support! Join us by going to our new member page: http://www.northcascades.org/signup.html

YOUR membership in N3C entitles you to receive our journal The Wild Cascades, by mail before it's available to the public on the web, and to a 20% discount on the purchase of our book Wilderness Alps: Conservation and Conflict in Washington's North Cascades, by Harvey Manning and N3C (http://www.northcascades.org/book.html).

N3C maintains very low overhead, with no office, and only the salary of a part-time Executive Director. So your contribution goes straight to where it's most needed.

But most of all, your membership supports our efforts to save an enduring legacy of the American landscape, second to none.

To protect and preserve the North Cascades' scenic, scientific, recreational, wildlife and wilderness values.
