It's not like they'll
grow back in your lifetime.
Once they're gone, they're gone.
Ancient trees provide the soil to absorb our decreasing rainfall or snow melt, the shade to keep our soils and rivers cool, and provide habitat for our birds and wildlife.
Greater Hells Canyon Council is a grassroots conservation organization founded in 1967 (as Hells Canyon Preservation Council) to stop Hells Canyon and the Snake River from being dammed. Not only did we stop the dam, our advocacy helped to create the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Our work now focuses on public lands management in the entire Greater Hells Canyon Region. We cover such diverse issues as logging, grazing, recreation, mining, species protection, wildlife connectivity, and more.
OUR MISSION is to connect, protect, and restore the wild lands, waters, native species and habitats of the Greater Hells Canyon Region, ensuring a legacy of healthy ecosystems for future generations.
Through fun signature events like the Bee Survey, Monthly Hikes, and Happy Hours, GHCC looks to connect the public to our mission of protecting and restoring the Greater Hells Canyon Region.
