Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center

“Our organization started in 1988, to oppose a large ski-condominium development approved for the area around Panther Meadows high on Mt. Shasta, held sacred to local native tribes. Ten years later, those plans were withdrawn. The “Bioregional” movement, defining regional physical and environmental characteristics, inspired us. It opposes a homogeneous economy and consumer culture, and emphasizes local populations, knowledge and solutions.”
