At Wilderness, we envision the Yakima Basin as a place where fish, wildlife, farms and families have access to cold, clean water and land is protected for everyone to enjoy now and into the future.
The Yakima Basin in Washington's North Cascades is a landscape that sustains fish, families and farms.
Our work in the Yakima Basin aims to protect the headwaters of the basin and restore critical fish and wildlife habitat through the successful implementation of the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan.
Our partnerships with other organizations are crucial to the success of our Yakima Basin work.
