Environmental Headlines We Would Like to See in 2019


By Mike Stevens, Washington State Director

2018 was a year of tremendous progress and challenge for people and nature in our state and our world. We saw ongoing challenges like rapid urban growth, record-setting smoke from fires, orca deaths, and the increasing challenge of climate change. We also saw people from all backgrounds and all parts of the state working together to create solutions that benefit people and nature.

In 2019, the people of Washington and The Nature Conservancy must accelerate our work tackling the biggest environmental challenges. We must learn how to deepen our impact and grow our ability to work together across social, political and geographic divides.
