A large portion of the land in Cascadia on both sides of the border is publicly owned. Each land management agency has different policies that govern the management of its lands. From Crown land in British Columbia to Community Forest Trust’s in Washington – there is a mix of federal, state, provincial, and local management throughout Cascadia. This page attempts to link you to these various land managers.
