Thank You for a New Watershed Park

Together last week, we helped create a new Lake Whatcom Forest Preserve Park, protecting 8,800 acres, nearly a quarter of the watershed, for recreation, clean water, and old forests. Thank you to the five Whatcom County Council members who voted 'yes' to embrace the long-term view. And thanks to the thousands of citizens who have worked to protect this drinking water source over the last 30 years!

Wolves Not Yet Out of the Woods

Conflict avoidance is important to transition Washington into a place where wolves and people can peaceably coexist. Today, wolves need your attention in the state legislature. Of a slew of earlier wolf bills, three survive. HB 1501, the "license plate bill," increases funding for conflict prevention – please support it. SB 5193 provides an additional revenue source for conflict prevention. SB 5187 would reduce accountability when using lethal control as a management tool, and we ask you to oppose it.

Presenting: Wolves in the Land of Salmon

The relationship of wolves and people is complex. We appreciate wolves and are fascinated by them, we also fear and blame them. Join professional wildlife tracker and photographer Dave Moskowitz for an evening of stunning images and stories on the life history, ecology, and conservation of our region's apex carnivore.
