Discover Your Northwest

Mission: Discover Your Northwest promotes the discovery of Northwest public lands, enriches the experience of visitors, and encourages stewardship of these special places today and for generations to come.

We envision more residents and visitors as active stewards who understand and care for the unique natural and cultural heritage of Northwest public lands.

They cultivate appreciation of Northwest public lands by operating on-site educational bookstores that provide visitors with high-quality books, educational toys, DVDs, and other items that enhance visitor understanding (visit our online store for some examples). They then use our sales proceeds to fund on-site events and programs, including state-of-the-art displays, free publications, speakers and performances, and habitat cleanup and restoration programs for volunteers of all social backgrounds. You can find us at a wide range of locations from urban and industrial to remote wilderness including Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle, Mount Hood National Forest, and many more locations across the greater Northwest.

Other Ways to Get Involved: Help make Northwest public lands places of education, inspiration, and recreation for everyone for generations to come - they have a variety of volunteer opportunities available.
