Can you tell me about Cascadia Wildlands?
Cascadia Wildlands is a small but fierce organization of planet guardians who educate, agitate, and work to inspire a movement to protect and restore Cascadia's wild ecosystems. This amazing group fights to preserve and rebuild a Pacific Northwest with vast old-growth forests, rivers full of wild salmon, wolves howling in the backcountry and vibrant communities sustained by the thriving temperate forest zones found from central Alaska to northern California.

I participate in the Mountain Rose Herbs affiliate program. Can I receive commission for Rootstalk ticket purchases?
Affiliates cannot receive commission for Rootstalk ticket purchases. Although Mountain Rose Herbs is presenting Rootstalk, the festival is a completely separate entity. We are presenting this festival as a benefit for Cascadia Wildlands. Tickets for the event are only available through the Rootstalk website and are not a shopping cart item on the Mountain Rose Herbs website. Therefore, no commissions can be accrued through the affiliate program. Thank you for your support!
