The MOUNT SHASTA BIOREGIONAL ECOLOGY CENTER (MSBEC) protects and restores the outstanding natural environment and cultural values of Mount Shasta – considered one of the sacred mountains of the world – and its surrounding bioregion.
Founded in 1988, MSBEC is a 501(c)(3) grassroots citizens’ organization which depends on dedicated staff and volunteers supported by grants, sponsorships and charitable contributions which may be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Our Mount Shasta bioregion is of great importance locally, nationally and internationally. From this land rich in biodiversity, pure waters flow to the Sacramento Valley and beyond. Visitors and residents alike enjoy numerous pristine natural sanctuaries and find inspiration at sacred places of high significance to Native American cultures.
