In boomtown Seattle, wild nature is at risk. Will our magnificent old-growth forests, wetlands, and beaches survive such intense urbanization?
The Seattle Nature Alliance advocates for preservation of natural parklands for passive recreation, wildlife habitat, and scenic beauty. This simple mission will ensure that urban nature will sustain all living creatures—people and wildlife alike. Seattle’s wild nature is the deepest-rooted part of our heritage, connecting us with thousands of years of Pacific Northwest native plants, animals, and people. Preserving that heritage is about the future—making sure the next generations will enjoy a nature-rich urban lifestyle.
