However you spent your Valentine’s Day, you deserve a big bear hug for your support of Northwest wildlife and wildlands.

By Matthew Brouwer, Director of Development

Whether you had someone to snuggle with this Valentine’s Day or not, we want to send you some love for your amazing support this past year!

Thanks to the generosity of our more than 4,000 members, we’ve been able to exceed our 2020 fundraising goal for membership raising 26 percent more in individual gifts than last year. That’s truly incredible and shows the dedication, commitment and passion of our many members and supporters who have helped ensure we can continue to move forward with an ambitious agenda for Northwest wildlife and wildlands even in the midst of the pandemic.

Thanks to your support, we haven’t slowed down with numerous wins big and small throughout the Northwest. Check out our timeline of accomplishments and recent blog showing 25 ways your giving made an impact in 2020.

You’ve made so much possible, and your continued support will help us make 2021 another banner year. Read more about our ambitious legislative agenda which includes lobbying for new wildlife crossings, more funding for land acquisitions and forest-friendly wildfire management, and bold action for nature-based climate solutions.

This is just part of our larger plan for the year, so stay tuned for more on what we’ll be doing in the months ahead to restore our sagelands, protect wild forests and watersheds, connect large landscapes like the Cascades and Olympics, and recover vulnerable wildlife like Canada lynx, sharp-tailed grouse and North Cascades wolverines.

You are at the heart of all we do, and we can’t thank you enough for continuing to sustain our bold vision for keeping the Northwest wonderful and wild!

With wild gratitude,



Matthew Brouwer
Director of Development
