Dresden Files

The Northwest Passage Project was a environmentalist project headed by Harley MacFinn. It's first mentioned in Fool Moon


The goal of the Project was to create a huge North American wildlife preserve beginning in the central Rocky Mountains of the American Southwest,[Footnote 1] and going northwest into Canada. To this purpose, the project bought land off private owners, with the intent of donating them to the state, provided the government in turn guaranteed that the land would be used as part of the Northwest Passage Project. The project had been working for several years, and had considerable support from environmentalist groups and also in the capital.[1]
