News updates on our work from the Coast to the Rockies.
Conservation Northwest is proud to announce closing on a conservation easement on the 504-acre Dawson Ranch near Colville, WA. This easement enables the Dawsons to commit their ranch permanently to open space and wildlife habitat while staying in operation.
Conservation Northwest and others were recognized by the Federal Highway Administration for our work with the Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group and wildlife bridges for I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project, in the Cascades.
An unintended, but welcome, consequence of the Northwest Forest Plan is a northwest carbon sink, according to a new study. "This report arrived just in time. Old-growth forests perform a critical role mitigating the effects of climate change. As management plans are revised over the next year, the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest will need to lay out how it will protect the carbon locked in deep storage in our old-growth forests."
