The Mountaineers The Mountaineers
March 21, 2022

The Mountaineers has a long history of protecting our natural landscapes. Time and time again, small individual actions have led to big victories for Washington’s outdoors, from the formation of Olympic National Park to the recent expansion of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Today, we continue our proud legacy by educating our members on how to be thoughtful stewards, advocating for the places we explore, and inspiring the outdoor community to take action for threatened landscapes. 

Whether you’re a total newbie, seasoned advocate, or somewhere in the middle, we encourage all Mountaineers to get involved in conservation and advocacy on behalf of the public lands we love and the outdoor experiences they provide. 

Join us virtually on Wednesday, April 27 at 7pm for our first-ever Conservation & Advocacy Town Hall for a deep dive into The Mountaineers conservation and advocacy work, and an update on some exciting new initiatives. Come connect with staff and members of our Conservation and Advocacy Committee, as well as other conservation-minded Mountaineers. We’re united by a shared duty to steward Washington’s public lands, and we're excited to discuss your interest in conservation and advocacy and how you might want to engage in this important work moving forward.

RSVP to Attend

What’s on Tap for the Town Hall?

Come hear from Mountaineers conservation staff about our key conservation and advocacy priorities and opportunities for members to get more involved. We’ll also detail new initiatives like Outdoor Alliance Washington and our Native Land Acknowledgement work. Participants will break out into small groups, giving members the opportunity to connect with others and share their interest around future opportunities for engagement in conservation and advocacy.

Why a Conservation Town Hall?

We’re interested in learning more about how members currently engage in conservation through The Mountaineers, what issues you care about, and how you’d like to get more involved in the future. We’re also excited to give you a deeper look into how The Mountaineers conservation staff advocates on your behalf, and why it’s so important that members speak up for the public lands and recreation experiences we love.

We’re driven by the belief that our outdoor community is uniquely positioned to tell compelling stories that demonstrate the need to fund our public lands, fight climate change, and make the outdoors accessible for all. This event and future engagement opportunities will help us continue to grow our community of fierce outdoors advocates.

We want to hear from you!

To help inform our conversation, we encourage you to take a few moments to share about your interest and engagement with conservation and advocacy through our pre-event survey. We're interested in hearing from everyone, even if you don't plan to attend the event. Your feedback will be helpful as we continue to expand opportunities for member engagement. Will you help shape the future of this important work?

TAKE SURVEY

We hope you’re able to join us at 7pm on Wednesday, April 27 for our Conservation & Advocacy Town Hall. Come with your questions and leave feeling inspired to use your voice to help protect our public lands and the recreation experiences they provide!
