Join us and Sierra Club members as we view our March movie, Counting Sheep: Restoring the Sierra Nevada Bighorn. Counting Sheep chronicles the struggle for survival of the wild Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, a majestic emblem of American wilderness. It captures the plight of the Sierra bighorn with dynamic interviews and exquisite footage –– the first film ever of one of the most endangered mammals of North America. At the heart of the film lies the tenacity of the biologists and environmentalists who fight to conserve these noble animals in the face of disease, harsh winters and predation by mountain lions. What is at stake is the future of a species.
Enjoy a 6:15 dinner-in-the-round with other environmentally-friendly
people from both organizations (bring your own brown bag dinner; hot beverages
will be provided). On March 10, we are
pleased to welcome Tom Reeve, Vice-president of Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition, to speak to us about
this non-profit citizens group founded by former Governors Dan Evans and Mike
Lowry in 1989. WWRP secured $100 million
from the Legislature last year to protect wildlife habitat and securing public
access to parks, trails, shorelines and other outdoor recreation areas.
The May 1 deadline to apply for grants to protect wildlife habitat and other lands is approaching fast. Tom will answer our questions about how the WWRP works and let us know how to apply for funding for our favorite projects.
