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...

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?

It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. This week is Bear Awareness Week, and here in Bellingham, we are celebrating as only Bellingham can, with lots of local flare, community involvement, and a little goofiness to boot. Never one to shy from a challenge, I head into the wilds of downtown in search of something special.

Victory by the volcano

The Green River, Goat Mountain, and the recovering ecosystems just north of Mount St. Helens will not be subjected to the disastrous intrusion of an open pit copper mine, and we couldn't be happier!

In a brain- and law-spinning sleight of hand to help timber industry buddies, the administration evaded the public process once again with their backwards arrangement with Canada on more than $5 billion in lumber tariffs. Conservation Northwest, other conservation groups, and the Senate want to know what happened and who benefited from the deal.
