Nature of NCW
The Nature of Place in North Central Washington celebrates the diversity of lands, life and culture that makes this region special. Ecologically, it’s a rich blend of four ecoregions – the North Cascades, Columbia Plateau, Okanagan, and East Cascades. Culturally, it’s a place where people come together to learn, share, and get things done.
The Healthy Lands program brings the agricultural, land conservation, economic development and planning community together to create innovative approaches for balancing the needs of cities, towns, and working farms, forests, and ranches with those of the native plant and wildlife communities that characterize North Central Washington.
