Last Howl for Wolves Oct 6 in Olympia

Thursday, Oct 6 is an important day to stand up for Washington's wolves and support a wolf recovery plan that guides their future in our state. Join us in Olympia to speak up for wolf recovery at a Fish and Wildlife Commission meeting. You won't be howling alone - Conservation Northwest will help you with your comments, provide a vanpool from Seattle, supply lunch, and celebrate with you afterwards at happy hour in Olympia.

By early December, the Commission is slated to approve or reject Washington's Wolf Conservation and Management Plan, but anti-wolf voices have abandoned the stakeholder process at the last hour and called for the plan's dismemberment. Without a last minute outpouring of pro-wolf voices, Washington's wolf plan could be sent back to the drawing board or eliminated altogether. Can't be there? Call the Commission at 360.902.2267 or send an email!

A World Without Wildlife Is Scary

We are making sure wolves and other Northwest wildlife thrive, so that no one has to experience a world without wildlife. But we can't do it without YOU. Our fall membership drive starts Oct. 12 and runs until Nov. 1. It's a great time to ask your friends to join our efforts and renew your own membership.

Fall is also a great time for workplace giving. Many companies sponsor fall giving drives, letting you break your gift into manageable increments regularly deducted throughout the year. Here are just a few of many options: Microsoft (we are agency #2293), Combined Fund Drive for state employees (#320835), Combined Federal Campaigns for federal employees (#74285), and United Way (in King County, #3941824). You might actually be able to double your donation through a company match, too!

A contribution today is an investment in tomorrow. For future generations, a wild Northwest is a priceless treasure passed down from thoughtful citizens like you. Thanks!

Saluting Generosity & Leadership

We are thrilled that long-time supporters Tom & Sonya Campion are being celebrated as this year's "Outstanding Philanthropic Individuals" by the Washington chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals. It's hard to imagine having succeeded in any of our major campaigns without the Campions' leadership and generosity.

Tom is a founding board member of Conservation Northwest. Wild places stir something in Tom's soul. and his motivation, passion, and persistence are unstoppable. Tom brings to us the same skills that allowed him to grow his company, Zumiez, to 400 stores. Sonya lent her fundraising expertise and wise counsel during the Loomis Forest campaign and The Cascades Conservation Partnership. A big thank you to Tom and Sonya, for their years of service for our wild places.
