Thank you to those who joined us at our Fall Celebration at Stoup Brewery in Seattle on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish and Duwamish people; you made Wednesday, October 11, a night to remember! We celebrated Bill Chapman’s lifetime achievements, the vital work being done by Hunters of Color, Climbers of Color, and Coast Salish Youth Stewardship Corps, along with a successful year for local and state parks, working lands, and habitat for plants and animals across our state.
We brought together 200 of Washington’s outdoors lovers from all over the state. We ate, drank, caught up with old friends, and made some new ones. We raised $211,546 to continue our work at the highest level possible.
We also talked about how we can give back to nature as Washington grows and how everyone has a role to play.
We hope the event energized you in the same way it energized our staff. It’s always such a delight to see how many people support the work we are doing!
Goodness knows we had plenty to get excited about!
