The Kettle Range Conservation Group was formed in 1976 to seek Wilderness protection for the Kettle River Range Mountains. During our 32-year history, Kettle Range has challenged hundreds of projects that threatened ancient forests, roadless areas and endangered species in the upper Columbia River Basin. Together with other colleagues, we have protected wilderness and stopped the destruction of more than one half million acres of publicly owned forests.
Kettle Range is a unique grassroots conservation organization with regional influence. We anchor a largely urban-based conservation movement from rural northeast Washington. For eighteen years prior to the opening of its first office in Republic in 1994, Kettle Range Conservation Group was an all-volunteer organization.
