Celebrating Lake Whatcom

We celebrated last week when the Whatcom County Council voted 5-2 to request that Washington State transfer 8,700 acres back to the county, protecting drinking water and creating opportunities for recreation in a priceless local watershed. Thank you for taking action! Please stay involved as Conservation Northwest takes the next steps needed to make the Lake Whatcom Forest Preserve Park a reality.

A Wild and Generous Month of May

Our hearts were touched by our supporters this month, in a big way. You took part in The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG, donating $21,000 to keep the Northwest wild. You went on to raise a record-breaking $248,000 at our "Hope for a Wild Future" auction, where guests got a sneak preview of BBC's "Land of the Lost Wolves." You also took action for Whatcom's water and Puget's prairies, renewed your memberships, hosted art fundraisers, volunteered, and more. Thank you, one and all!

You Love to Be Outside

You love to be outside, so do we. While we are busy working inside to conserve wildlife and habitat, our friends at Washington Trails Association (WTA) are helping you get out and into the wilds. This summer we're cooperating with WTA on a variety of trail work parties and hikes in northeastern Washington's Kettle River Range and Selkirk Mountains. Join us!
