Join us for a grizzly bear public meeting in Renton Friday Feb. 24!

Conservation Northwest / Feb 28, 2017 / Grizzly Bears

We hope to see you Friday evening, February 24, for a happy hour and public meeting on North Cascades grizzly bears!

We’ll be meeting at the Berliner Pub at 5:00 p.m. (Google Maps) to toast to bears and update supporters on proposals to restore the only remaining grizzly population on the West Coast of the contiguous United States.

Please RSVP for our happy hour by emailing!

Then at 6:00 p.m. we’ll head over to the Renton Community Center (Google Maps) to attend the open house on bear restoration hosted by the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

We also have a flier with quick facts and suggested comments that you can print off for the meeting. Download it here.

With the public comment period open, this is a critical time to show support for North Cascades grizzly bears. The science is clear: no action means grizzly bears will soon go locally extinct in our region. We cannot let this happen.

Together, we need to show that thousands of individuals, communities, organizations and businesses support the return of a functioning grizzly bear population in the North Cascades through active restoration efforts.

If you can’t attend Friday’s public meeting, submit a comment today in support of Alternative C: Incremental Restoration through our Friends of the North Cascades Grizzly Bear coalition. And please share this message!

It’s not too late to save the North Cascades grizzly. And thankfully, biologists know how to restore these bears. Guided by education, outreach and a transparent public process, it’s been happening successfully in northwest Montana for years. This is a powerful blueprint for restoration in our region. But grizzly bears need your support to make it happen!

Let’s do the right thing for these bears, and for all that makes the Northwest wild. We hope to see you in Renton on Friday. If you have questions or want more information, please reply to this message or contact me at
