Up one level

Welcome to Conservation Northwest's blog.

Get ready for Homecoming

Get ready for Homecoming

When I think of “Homecoming,” I can still feel the excitement that came with my favorite football team taking the field in October to cheers and bright lights. To many of us, the word itself brings memories of high school days: of fancy dresses, dances, and school spirit. To us at Conservation Northwest, we thought this occasion could not fit more perfectly with the return home of some of Washington’s wildest animals, including wolves, wolverines, and fishers.

Accountability for ATVs

Accountability for ATVs

Today we took a step closer to ending the epidemic of illegal and harmful use of off-road vehicles. Unethical ATV riders have created thousands of illegal and damaging trail miles on Washington state lands and cost ranchers and tree farmers millions in property damage. They can be a noisy disruption in a quiet backcountry for those who hike or hunt. HB 1632 will reduce abuse while expanding legitimate ATV recreation opportunities. Washington.

We left you hanging in the fall 2012 newsletter: “The real proof of whether our pilot range rider program can help ranchers in Washington won’t be known until the cows came home later this fall.” Well, they've returned home, and on a positive note. During last year's grazing season, we partnered with the Washington Department of Fish Wildlife to fund a range rider - the first in Washington - at the Dawson Ranch in northeast Washington. Range riding is an effective on-the-ground conflict avoidance solution for wolves and people.
