Hells Canyon Preservation Council protects and restores the natural treasures of the Hells Canyon-Wallowa and Blue Mountain ecosystems. From the remote splendor of Hells Canyon and the Seven Devils to the rolling highlands of the Zumwalt Prairie, from the winding watersof the Grande Ronde to the crystalline lakes of Eagle Cap, from the protected breaks of the Wenaha-Tucannon to the rugged summits of the Elkhorns, we envision inspiring wildlands and pure waters where native species thrive in harmony with prosperous rural communities.
As a 501(c)(3), HCPC epitomizes a unique, grassroots approach to long-term activism, and we have a winning record of conservation victories! Your donation will keep us working hard for the natural world.
