Who We Are

Today, we have 14,000 members and seven branches in Western Washington, and thanks to the work of generations of volunteers we continue to enjoy an outstanding reputation in the field of outdoor education and recreation. Our dedicated staff and volunteers get people outside to experience the power of the outdoors and we advocate for access and protection of recreational lands so that future generations can enjoy these places too. Our core value of community reflects the belief that a diverse and inclusive outdoors inspires unity, respect, and passion for the places we love. As fierce defenders of our wild places, we educate and inspire outdoor enthusiasts to learn about and take action on public lands issues from the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
We have 55 staff, divided between our program centers and our nonprofit publishing division, Mountaineers Books, and 3,000+ volunteers who help achieve our mission to enrich lives by helping people explore, conserve, learn about, and enjoy the lands and waters of the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
