    • Great news! Washington Senator Patty Murray has introduced the Methow Headwaters Protection Act of 2016 to protect the headwaters of Washington’s Methow Valley from industrial-scale mining. The bill, cosponsored by Washington Senator Maria Cantwell, supports the work of civic and business leaders, farmers, and ranchers and Methow residents to safeguard the lands and waters the valley depends on forever.

    • Did you know Canada’s federal government committed to increasing the amount of protected ocean in Canada from 1% to 5% by 2017, and 10% by 2020? @CPAWS_national is working to designate a network of “marine protected areas” in the Bay of Fundy to help achieve this conservation goal. Marine protected areas are like wilderness areas for the ocean, and these designations would protect the Bay of Fundy from industrial development and exploitation. We are proud to support this project. Photo Credit:  Irwin Barrett #CPAWS
    • @grandcanyonwildlands is one of several organizations working to protect 1.7 million acres of land surrounding Grand Canyon National Park.  If President Obama designates the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument before he leaves office,  the 20-year uranium mining ban the Obama Administration put into place in 2012 would be made permanent.  The Grand Canyon Watershed is a singular landscape that provides endless recreation opportunities. A national monument designation would ensure that both recreation access and wildlife habitat surrounding the Grand Canyon are preserved. We are proud to fund Grand Canyon Wildlands Council and Pew Charitable Trusts for their effort to protect this iconic landscape. Photo Credit: Kristen M.

    • @rei and @superfeet joined @conservationalliance, @amerwhitewater and @mountaineersorg for a meeting with Senator Maria Cantwell to say thank you for her leadership on LWCF. She is truly one of the champions working hard to protect our favorite wild places!
