Connecting with Nature

Nature of NCW Video

The Nature of North Central Washington celebrates the rich diversity of life that makes this portion of the Northwest special. The 12-minute video explores the natural systems and species that characterize the alpine, coniferous forest, shrub steppe and freshwater habitats of the north central region of Washington state. The program combines the expertise of regional scientists with that of local residents to create a portrait of biodiversity resources along with the actions people are taking across the region to conserve this natural wealth. Illustrated with photographs contributed by more than 50 local community members, The Nature of North Central Washington serves as a platform for developing additional place-based programs that focus on individual counties or habitat types and contribute to a greater understanding of the biodiversity resources of the region.
