Welcome to Cascadia
Cascadia is a unique coastal bioregion that defines the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada, incorporating British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, parts of Idaho, southern Alaska and northern California, and in many ways is geographically, culturally, economically and environmentally distinct from surrounding regions.
CascadiaNow! is working to become a grassroots, umbrella non-profit organization that provides resources and direct services to groups, projects, and community partners to raise awareness of Cascadia, celebrate our distinct regional identity and culture, and increase the independence of the Cascadia bioregion.
For us, Cascadia is a lens to reframe and break down larger and intangible issues onto a local level where change is happening on a daily basis - and a scale where connections make sense. We want to transform our society so that each each person can be their own agent of change around what they feel important, and shift away from the idea that somehow a voting box every four years will solve our problems.
We hope you'll join us.
Want to be involved? Just as Cascadia is a network of communities with common interests, CascadiaNow! chapters are a network of localized groups working to further the cause of Cascadia. In addition, anyone who would like to help us with any related skills or would like to sponsor a project, join us! **Our groups and chapters will be launching January 1, 2015. Our network is currently in pre-planning. Fill out the form to stay updated, or help in our current pre-planning phase**
