Join Us for a "Wildlife Homecoming"

Wolves and wolverines aren't the only big players. You are! At our annual auction, you'll want to join in to support our work and bid on very cool auction items, including a "glamping" and rafting trip in Idaho, fantastic local wine and winery tours, box seats to a Mariners game, a ski lover's dream getaway to BC, field time releasing fishers to the Cascades, and a backyard beekeeping experience.

On another home front: The Seattle office is seeking a new home, and we need your help. Please contact Kim if you have commercial property leads or contacts. We're aiming for a location north of downtown for about 10 people.

Wolves and Riders on the Range

Conservation Northwest finds solutions and protects Washington's wolves through collaborative, on-the-ground work. In 2011 we helped gain a conservation plan for recovering wolves and this year, substantial money for non-lethal conflict prevention tools. In 2012 we kick-started a pilot range rider program, the first for Washington and so successful that we are now sponsoring three range riders around the state, near the Teanaway, Wenatchee, and Smackout packs, to help ranchers live with wolves.

Grizzly Bears, Coast to Cascades

Two hundred years ago a person could walk from central Mexico to the shores of the Arctic Ocean and regularly see signs of grizzly bears the entire way. Not so today. Small numbers of grizzly bears have managed to hang on in the wilder and more isolated corners of southwest British Columbia and northern Washington. But they need our help to survive. Visit our Facebook page to stay in the loop for bears. What can we do? Remarkable video tells all: Why Bears?

Help Your Forests This Summer

Our forest restoration work prioritizes identifying a balanced road network on our public lands and rehabilitating unnecessary roads. The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is looking for input on its roads at local meetings and online. You can make a difference! Which roads are important to keep open and which should be closed for wildlife and other values? What have your eyes and feet told you in the big outside, and what does the National Forest Service need to know to manage our national forest wisely?
