Make I-90 Wildlife Watch Part of Your Drive

When you drive I-90 from North Bend to Easton you can be a citizen scientist by reporting a wildlife sighting at I-90 Wildlife Watch. This collaborative, new project enlists motorists' help documenting wildlife–including roadkill–that they see on or near the highway around Snoqualmie Pass. Your wildlife sightings help planners improve safe passage for wildlife and people where a busy freeway crosses an equally busy wildlife corridor in the Cascades.

The ideal candidate will have at least two years of direct fundraising experience, strong people skills, and excellent communication and management abilities. Are you the one? Contact us today.



Washington's Last Frontier

Explore "Washington's Last Frontier" in a new video tour of the Columbia Highlands.







Fly with us through Washington's Last Wilderness Frontier

Our new multimedia project "Columbia Highlands: Washington's Last Wilderness Frontier" puts the wild, northeast corner of Washington on the map as one of the most important conservation efforts for Northwest wildlife in decades.

The video features stunning images and a narrated Google Earth tour that highlights this critical lifeline between the Cascades and the Rockies. Wilderness protection, ecosystem restoration, quality forest management, jobs in the woods, improved recreation infrastructure, and ranchland preservation: It's all part of our Columbia Highlands story. Enjoy and please share it with friends!
