Located in Seattle, NPCA’s Northwest Regional Office works to protect the natural beauty, wild landscapes, diverse wildlife and rich heritage of the national parks in Oregon and Washington. Places like Mount Rainier and Crater Lake capture our imagination, while sites like the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park and the recently designated Manhattan Project National Historical Park remind us of our storied past. The variety of landscapes, both natural and cultural, and the proximity of parks to urban centers contribute to the unique character of the Cascadian region.

The staff of the Northwest Regional Office work on a range of critical park protection issues. Whether seeking the restoration of grizzly bears to the North Cascades, the protection of natural soundscapes in Olympic’s Hoh Rain Forest, or the preservation of wilderness at Crater Lake, the team’s campaigns succeed by partnering with new voices, building ties in local communities, and pushing for the advancement of the national park idea.

The Northwest staff also contribute to NPCA’s broader efforts to secure adequate funding for our national parks, to deepen our relationships with veteran service organizations by engaging this audience in recreation, service and advocacy, and broadening and strengthening support for our parks by engaging young adults in our Northwest Student Leadership Council. Buoyed by the establishment of Washington’s newest national park, Manhattan Project at Richland, they push for more inclusive storytelling in our parks and fight to get younger and more diverse audiences into the parks to broaden the base of national park supporters for years to come.

It’s an exciting time in the Northwest, and we hope you’ll join our efforts to preserve and enhance our park system for present and future generations
