Good News for Wolves and Ranchers

For Washington's wolves, action taken in the legislature has secured funding for conflict prevention including range riding and other proven methods that reduce and help prevent conflicts between wolves and other large carnivores. Starting in October, funds will come from $10 added to the cost of a Washington vanity license plate. Look for a contest later this summer: you can help Conservation Northwest name our own new vanity plate!

New Guide to Northeast Washington

Welcome, hot off the press, to a wildlife viewing and recreation guide highlighting the Columbia Highlands. Conservation Northwest's new guide offers hikes, handicap accessible paths, and auto tour loops for families. You'll find opportunities to view wildlife and enjoy scenic backcountry on horseback – and more! Look for the booklet at a northeast Washington business near you.

Volunteer Outdoors with Conservation Northwest

As the spring snow melts from the mountains, we're high-tailing it to the central and eastern Cascades to restore, improve, and connect wildlife habitat in four watersheds from Snoqualmie Pass to the Selkirk Mountains. With a little sweat equity, you, too, can make a difference for wildlife and habitat in Washington! Join us at the work parties below.
