Welcome to Cascadia!
Cascadia is a unique coastal bioregion that defines the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada, as defined through the watersheds of the Fraser and Columbia watersheds. It incorporates all of or parts of southern Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Northern California.
More than just a bioregion, Cascadia is also a positive and inclusive, place based inter-dependence movement to break down boundaries and borders that are arbitrary or negative; shift our actions and impacts locally; build models we can share for the rest of the world; and build a bioregional community that fosters a culture rooted in a love of place. Any individual, community or group can be a part of this movement if they help our region become more sustainable, autonomous or resilient, or are working to help improve the livelihood of those living here.
CascadiaNow! is the largest organization promoting the idea of bioregionalism and Cascadia, is working to build a network of ambassadors and chapters across the Pacific Northwest, and is an umbrella 501(c)3 non-profit that is a backbone for services and support. CascadiaNow! is an entirely supporter driven movement, and exists with no grant funding. In our first two years, we have adopted and currently administer 16 programs, with many others in the pipeline, and are working hard to create tools and partnerships to make this region better for all of us living here.
