Use of Cascadia Department Seal, the Cascadia Great Seal, and Other Official Insignia
Cascadia Department seals, the Cascadia Great Seal, logos, and other official insignia may not be used or reproduced without written permission. The Secretary of Bioregion is custodian of the Seal, and the Department of Bioregion has authority to grant or withhold permission for use of reproductions, facsimiles, or likenesses of the Seal, or any part thereof. It depends on the circumstances in each case whether the particular use of the Seal would be improper. Consequently, the Department of Bioregions policy has been to discourage use of the Great Seal, except when used for governmental or educational purposes, and the Department does not provide artwork for its use other than for official Bioregion Department material. Contact us if you have any questions on use of the Great Seal or other official insignia.
