MISSION

The MOUNT SHASTA BIOREGIONAL ECOLOGY CENTER protects and restores the outstanding natural environment and cultural values of Mount Shasta – considered one of the sacred mountains of the world – and its surrounding bioregion.

The natural environment includes people, first of all; we work with water, air, forestry, agriculture, and energy issues and the great challenges of climate change affecting our area.

Emphasizing cultural values means we understand both natural and human history, promote resilience and abundance, join together in celebrating common spiritual values and inspirations…and most of all we encourage everyone to go outside!
