Six words I hadn't heard in 1989

Posted by Mitch Friedman at May 01, 2014 05:30 AM |

On the day of our 25th anniversary celebration and "Hope for a Wild Future" auction, Executive Director Mitch Friedman realized he has learned some new words over the years.

Six words I hadn't heard in 1989

Last year I turned 50, but today I turn 25 again.

That’s how long ago I founded Conservation Northwest; and coincidentally how old I was at the time. There are some things I’ve lost in the ensuing years, including my hair. But there is much more that has been added to my life in addition to my wonderful daughters: fishers, wolves, wolverines, and a great host of friends who share my love of wild nature and the journey to secure a place for it.

I’ve learned some new words along the way, like Late Successional Reserve, Loomis Natural Resource Conservation Area, habitat connectivity, wildlife overpass/underpass, variable density thinning, range rider, and many more.

I may have been wilder 25 years ago, but the Northwest is wilder today. Thanks to all who have made this possible, and who commit to seeing it through.
