Northwest Ecosystem Survey Team

NEST is an all-volunteer group of self-organizing, tree-climbing humans. Each summer, NEST volunteers take on a role as canopy surveyors, who utilize the Northwest Forest Plan’s “Survey and Manage” laws to protect ancient forests threatened by logging.

Since its formation in 1999, NEST has found hundreds of Red Tree Vole nests in areas that were slated for logging. Thousands of acres of red tree vole habitat have been saved, as a result of NEST surveys. Visit the website to learn more.
