Her forward-thinking vote that day created an innovative way for almost everyone in the state to help wildlife.

Solutions-focused forum for wildlife

Solutions-focused forum for wildlife

The week after Thanksgiving, Jay headed out from his office in Omak, destined for Cle Elum and a gathering of conservationists. There was maybe more Carhartt than REI and more dirt under the nails than in the hiking boots than what you might expect from a “gathering of conservationists.” But these people were no less focused on preserving the land, wildlife, and natural heritage of Washington than a green drinks meetup here in Bellingham.

Fish and Wildlife Department shift on wolves

Fish and Wildlife Department shift on wolves

Filed under: wolves

I highly value the close working relationship Conservation Northwest has with the WA Department of Fish and Wildlife.
