The Chuckanut Conservancy is dedicated to the protection and restoration of the unique wildlands in the Chuckanuts-to-Cascades region of Northwest Washington.

For lively articles, tidbits and current happenings around the Chuckanuts, please check out our new Blog!

Currently, we are actively working to secure protection for all or most of Blanchard Mountain, a rare example of a large and relatively intact coastal forest. In fact, Blanchard and the Chuckanuts represent the largest remaining block of maturing, publicly owned forest on the entire eastern shore of the greater Puget Sound.

To learn more about what makes this place so unique, please visit the links to the left.
