Shasta Visions has a wonderful relationship with The Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center, donating to their incredible mission of protecting our local environment.  Richard Lucas, the owner of Shasta Visions, serves on the board, dedicating time and energy to this important cause.

THE MOUNT SHASTA BIOREGIONAL ECOLOGY CENTER, founded in 1988, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the outstanding natural environment and cultural values of Mount Shasta, one of the sacred mountains of the world, and of its surrounding bioregion, recognizing this region is of great importance locally, nationally and internationally in providing pure waters to the Sacramento Valley, rich biodiversity, numerous pristine natural sanctuaries, and sacred areas of high significance to Native American cultures near and far.

To us this means a healthy bioregion surrounding a Mountain shining in its white robe of snow, mantled by the ancient Shasta red fir forest and other lavish flora and wildlife encompassing five life zones (from arctic alpine down to sonoran), waters running crystal pure and unpolluted skies, with responsible stewardship and enjoyment by human beings. This is not hard to imagine because much of the area is pristine and beautiful, though some of it has suffered from logging and overuse and needs to be restored, and its natural values are continually threatened by misplaced ambitions for inappropriate commercial development and resource extraction.

Based in Mount Shasta, California, approximately 60 miles south of the Oregon/California border, at the headwaters of the Sacramento River, the Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center was formally incorporated in 1990 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit grassroots citizens' organization to which donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
