Cascadia Times publishes environmental journalism from the Cascadia Bioregion: Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, Montana, Idaho and Northern California, as well as marine ecosystems in the North Pacific Ocean, the Bering Sea and the Arctic.
Cascadia Times investigates governmental and corporate decisions and actions that affect the environment in the Cascadia Bioregion, with an emphasis on making connections between people, wildlife and habitats. We seek not only to inform citizens but to empower the people and organizations working to protect our environmental resources and heritage.
Cascadia Times is a member of The Media Consortium, a national network of independent and community outlets that partner with culturally specific communities and social justice movements to build a better world. We see social justice movements as valuable partners and allies in the journalism that we produce.
Cascadia Times Magazine is published quarterly in print. Our website is updated continuously.
In 2009, the print version of Cascadia Times Magazine ceased publication as we decided to focus our energies on producing news for our web site.
Eventually, however, we realized that we were not comfortable with the fact that all digital news outlets must depend on Google and Facebook for visibility and traffic. Small, independent outlets like ours are vulnerable to these giant corporations and their shifting policies and questionable behavior, including their mishandling of personal privacy, their role in spreading disinformation and their enabling conspiracy theorists, trolls and bots to distort our politics.
Print publications enjoy many advantages over digital publications, including their superior presentation of photographs, maps and other graphics.
So In 2018, we decided to relaunch the print edition of Cascadia, marking a return to more traditional ways of making connecting readers with news. We do not think the Internet should be the sole source of the information people need about their planet.
