Voices of Cascadia

The transboundary Cascades ecosystem shared by British Columbia and Washington inspires individuals from around the region.  This page places a human face to the landscape by having individuals address what it is about this area that they connect with, from their favorite places to the research questions they are addressing.

Click on an image below to hear their voice on our Voices of Cascadia YouTube channel, and stay tuned as we will be updating this page regularly with new individuals and reasons soon.  Videos are organized in alphabetical order.
