RRAS holds a seat on the Board of Directors of the Northcoast Environmental Center (NEC), founded in 1971. This nonprofit umbrella for a host of citizen activist groups has been at the forefront of every Klamath-Siskiyou regional environmental struggle for decades - from ancient redwoods, wild rivers, and recycling to toxics, energy, and endangered species.
