Our work in Washington has been reflected in news stories, guest opinion columns, and editorials around the state.

Here are some of the highlights:


EDITORIALS & OPINIONS

We’ve been making the case for nature on climate change, Puget Sound and river restoration, forest restoration and other issues.


FOREST ACQUISITION & RESTORATION

SOME MEDIA ATTENTION CONTINUED FOR OUR 48,000-ACRE ACQUISITION IN THE CENTRAL CASCADES, ALONG WITH A NEW ACQUISITION OF 3,184 ACRES ON THE HOH.


FORESTS & FIRE

In 2015, we had the second year in a row of the worst wildfires in the state’s recorded history. The Conservancy has been working on many fronts to restore our forests and make them more resilient in the face of fire, to help communities better prepare to live where fire is part of the landcape, and to change federal funding practices so that fighting catastrophic fires doesn’t take money away from forest restoration.

Our all-out effort is reflected the depth and variety of media coverage, including news stories and editorials around the state. Click here for a roundup of fire media, which includes:


CLIMATE CHANGE

The Conservancy is working to help our communities be better prepared for climate change, and encouraging sensible carbon pricing options that work for Washington state.



WASHINGTON COAST RESTORATION & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

On the Washington Coast, our work conserving and restoring forests, rivers, and the ocean is entwined with local sustainable economic development.
