I thought a blog was a big leap for some of the less web-addicted staff at Conservation Northwest, but right here on this blog, Mitch is eating pastry and sending his iphone pic to us, Joe is blogging about old growth in Canada, and now, we are on YouTube...again.

What can we say? It was a night to remember. 290 people came together to help ensure a healthy future for wildlife, forest communities, and future generations. Any wild guesses how much was raised for our programs?

Antiques of any kind enjoy a somewhat exalted place in human cultures, whether you're talking about a 1937 Packard or the Eiffel Tower. So, what would a living cedar that is 1,000 years or perhaps 2,000 years old be worth - and when will Canada treat ancient trees with the same thoughtful respect?

We are all prepping wildly for our 5th Annual Hope for a Wild Future auction, so instead of my normal, terribly clever musings about our work, I thought I would catch up on some interesting news items from the past week. Know any other good stories from the world of wildlife and wildlands? Let's hear 'em!This week we have wilder skies, cutting trees to save a system, and more...

High five to Wild Sky!

Floating down the Skykomish just became an even wilder proposition as the long awaited Wild Sky Wilderness was created this week. We are thrilled for the folks with enough foresight to protect this beautiful place for future generations, but we wonder...will wilderness ever be more than a westside win?

The Northwest Power and Conservation Council reported this week that 2007 was a record year for reducing the Northwest's electricity usage. Looks like we all worked together to conserve enough electricity to power approximately 146,000 homes!

Good job, us!

I am in Spokane today, but rest assured, bears are still the star in Bellingham! I received an email from Mitch's cell phone yesterday, and, as you can see, fun was had and bears appreciated! And today is the big day...are you ready for Lil Griz and her furry pink sidekick?
