Cascadia Department of Bioregion
An Interconnected World of Bioregional Movements
The Cascadia Department of Bioregion researches, promotes and disseminates information about bioregionalism, a grassroots approach to ecology that emphasizes sustainability, community self-determination and regional self-reliance.
Through its projects, publications, speakers, and workshops, the Cascadia Department of Bioregion networks and starts bioregional groups to encourage local organizations and individuals to find sustainable ways to live within the natural confines of bioregions.
We believe the people living in a place are the best suited to restore and maintain that area. We build greater understandings of our bioregion, promote place appropriate technologies and policies, provide direct funding for community projects, educate about bioregionalism, and support the creation of centers to determine the carrying capacities and regenerative frameworks for each watershed and bioregion we live in.

Your Chinook Word of the Day
Chinook Jargon (also known as Chinuk Wawa, or Chinook Wawa) was the true lingua francais of the Cascadia bioregion for several hundred years. At its height, it had more than 100,000 speakers in the late 19th century, before becoming almost extinct in the 20th century. It is now a language being revived.
