Executive Director Mitch Friedman and CNW Board Member Amelia Marchand


Thank you to everybody who attended our first in-person auction in nearly three years last night. We had an extraordinary evening filled with personal stories, updates on our work, and a thrilling live auction and paddle raise!

This year we raised over $400,000 to help keep the Northwest wild!

If you haven’t fulfilled your paddle raise or paid for other auction purchases yet, please contact Membership and Events at bailey@conservationnw.org

During the evening we highlighted our Cascades to Olympics program. C2O staff Paula Swedeen and Brian Stewart highlight this crucial work and our local community partnerships in our annual video.

We’re grateful to everybody who could attend virtually and in person and for all our volunteers who helped ensure the night was a success!

It was so good to see you all! Stay tuned to hear how you can join the fun next year!

Paws Up Paddle Raise!


Our 19th Annual Hope for a Wild Future Auction and Dinner would not have been possible without the support of our generous sponsors and donors.
