December 13: Speak Up at the Final Hearing Scheduled For the Governor's Climate Legislative Workgroup (Olympia)Posted by Elisabeth Keating
The Climate Legislative and Executive Workgroup was created under Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 5802 (E2SSB 5802) during the 2013 Regular Session. The Workgroup is charged with recommending a state program of actions and policies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, that if implemented would ensure achievement of the state’s emissions reductions limits set in Chapter 70.235 by the 2008 legislature.
Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 5802 requires preparation by a consultant(s) of a credible evaluation of approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The evaluation will inform the work of the Climate Legislative and Executive Workgroup.
Please join the South King County group for a festive holiday celebration in Kent.

Wolves are fascinating creatures. They inspire us, symbolize survival and only inhabit our wildest landscapes. While Washington's last wolves were slaughtered in the 1930's, the wolves are finally returning to our state after being gone for almost a century. Come join the Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife and other conservationists as we do all we can to protect wolves and their habitat! We invite you to join us for an afternoon of food, storytelling, public testimony, wolf-mask crafting, and public adv...ocacy. Together, we hope to howl for a wild future!
Despite their fragile recovery, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering removing wolves from the endangered species list, which would make them fair game for hunting, trapping, and would jeopardize their recovery in Washington and all over the country. This is NOT the time to take away important national protections for this endangered species. Event will be indoors.
Learn about and help save Washington's ancient forests, roadless areas, and trails. Many volunteer opportunities available around the state, including our Washington Wild Places Campaign, Cascade Checkerboard Project, and North Cascades trail work parties. All are welcome! We'll meet at the Washington State Chapter office. For more information, contact Mark Lawler.
