As advocates for public lands, we work hard to effect positive change on issues at the intersection of conservation and recreation. A large part of this work is creating avenues for our members - and the greater outdoor community - to take action to protect our wild places. We have a unique impact in protecting the outdoor experience. That said, public policy is complex, victories can be slow, and our public lands are chronically underfunded.

It can be difficult work, but with your help and financial support we can continue our imperative work around education, stewardship, and advocacy.

Our community of Mountaineers consistently models resilience, dedication, and perseverance - exactly what’s needed to fight for public lands.

We need you now more than ever.

We need you because threats have become all too common in recent years: wildfires contaminate our air and close down trails, national monuments are under unprecedented scrutiny, and our country’s most important conservation and recreation program, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, has been allowed to expire again.

The places we love and explore are at risk. The urgency is inherent: without the health and access of our public lands, our outdoor education courses and activities become obsolete. 

But solutions are within reach, and it starts with you.

With your year-end support we can continue funding efforts to ensure a safe and habitable future for our children, forests, and wildlife.

As a Mountaineer, you've already helped with significant victories. Last year our community took more than 4,200 individual actions to protect public lands, and contributed 14,000 stewardship hours to our natural places. You joined over 7,500 Washingtonians to voice your support of the Land and Water Conservation Fund. You helped protect the Methow Valley from industrial-scale mining, and influenced state lawmakers to remove bill provisions that would have made it easier to sell off our state's public lands.

Your year-end gift of $100 allows us to continue our impact: from advocating on behalf of The Mountaineers mission in Washington, D.C. to getting our hands dirty doing trail work on our most beloved public lands. 


Let’s continue protecting the landscapes that inspire us and provide priceless outdoor experiences for generations of Mountaineers.

Every donation makes a difference.
