While we know everyone’s hearts and minds are upon the fast-evolving pandemic, we hope that you will take part in our Online Silent Auction benefiting Northwest wildlife and wildlands from March 27th through 6:00 p.m. on April 3rd.

We recognize that with COVID-19 there could be an impact on when certain packages like dining experiences may become available. Know that we have found package donors to be very accommodating of the current situation, and that we will do everything in our power to ensure that you can redeem your package once life has returned to normal.
t’s a big deal for us having to cancel our annual Auction & Dinner due to COVID-19. The event is our single biggest source of revenue for the year and our largest gathering of friends and supporters. In its place, our Online Silent Auction offers a wonderful opportunity to sustain the important programs you know and love like Range Riding for coexistence with wolves, the Sagelands Heritage Program, Coast to Cascades grizzly bear conservation, and the Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project. It also funds our newest initiatives like our Healthy Watersheds Campaign to protect Washington watersheds from B.C. mining waste and the Cascades to Olympics wildlife corridor program.
Your support ensures that we can continue to make progress in Washington and southern British Columbia for healthy watersheds, protected public lands, and restored forests and sagelands for all the wonderful wild creatures who inhabit these fragile landscapes, as well as local communities.

In times of crisis it’s important for us to come together in support of the causes and communities we care about most. And while rightly in this moment we are focused on the health of family, friends and the community at large, we know we also must continue to look big picture to protect the gains we’ve fought so hard to make and continue to protect the vulnerable ecosystems that sustain us all.
