Kickoff our 30th Anniversary in South Seattle on February 7
Conservation Northwest / Jan 16, 2019 / Events
We’ve kept the Northwest wild for 30 years, and we want to celebrate with you!
Join us on Thursday, February 7th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Counterbalance Brewing Company in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood to kickoff our 30th Anniversary!
Come meet some of the faces behind important local conservation work including our staff, members and others in our conservation community, while contributing to our work to protect, connect and restore local wildlands and wildlife. A portion of every beer sold will support our efforts to keep the Northwest wild.
We’ll look back on highlights from our organization’s history, celebrate our recent achievements and toast to what we plan to do next. You’ll also get an exclusive update on our work for healthy forests, watersheds and wildlife crossings in the Central Cascades.
This happy hour is open to the public, but please RSVP on our Facebook event or by emailing outreach (at) conservationnw.org!
Pets and kids are welcome, and we’ll happily provide three free beer tickets if you bring two friends!
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get involved in our work and win some new Conservation Northwest merchandise.
Can’t join us in South Seattle on February 7th? We’ll be holding happy hours, guided hikes, volunteer opportunities and other events around the state in 2019 to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Stay tuned for more, or contact us if you’d like to help host an event!
Kicking off our 30th Anniversary
In 1989, Mitch Friedman founded the Greater Ecosystem Alliance in Bellingham, “to promote the protection of biological diversity through the conservation of large ecosystems.” Since then, our name has changed, but for the most part, our M.O. remains the same: connect the big landscapes, restore iconic wildlife and protect our natural heritage for future generations.
Over the past 30 years, we’ve led efforts to permanently protect wildlands including the Loomis State Forest and Blanchard Mountain, reconnect landscapes including the north and south Cascades across I-90, and help restore wildlife including fishers, wolves and wolverines. Learn more on our website timeline!
With our partners and supporters, we’ve made the natural heritage of the Northwest wilder over the past 30 years, but we’re just getting started. We still have a lot of work to secure a wild future, and we’ll need your continued dedication to get us there. But first—let’s cheers to what we’ve accomplished so far!
