Conservation Northwest / Oct 04, 2016 / Work Updates
By Jeff Baierlein, Development and Communications Director
Sparkling glaciers atop rugged mountains. Majestic old-growth forests teeming with life. Streams full of salmon. This is what Conservation Northwest brings to you.
For nearly 30 years we’ve won hard-fought protections for the wild places that make the Pacific Northwest so special. And it’s all possible due to the generosity of supporters like you.

Your membership supports enduring protections for the lands and waters you love.
Just a few of our recent successes include:
- Following an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, we held rallies and showed politicians there’s wide support to keep public lands in public hands
- Fishers, driven to extirpation in the Cascades generations ago, were reintroduced last year, thanks in part to our leadership and financial support from our members.
- We removed miles of unnecessary and habitat-damaging roads, creating more salmon-friendly streams and reconnecting important habitat for lynx, elk and mule deer.
- We successfully pushed for innovative wildlife bridges to cross Interstate 90 in Washington’s Cascades, saving wildlife and people from collisions. The first arches for this major project went up last month!
But there’s more. Much more. Saving endangered lynx under additional peril from climate change. Convincing legislators to fund wildfire preparedness. Keeping favorite hiking and camping spots safe from development. These are some of the many campaigns your membership makes possible.
Working together, we’ll keep the Northwest beautiful, healthy and wild. Please join us today!
