Wild Olympics Campaign Website Launched!
The Sierra Club is a founding member of the Wild Olympics Campaign, a coalition working to protect watersheds on the Olympic Peninsula.
Just a few of days ago, the Wild Olympics Campaign launched its official campaign website: www.wildolympics.org
Over the past year, the Campaign has been reaching out to other local stakeholders to build support listen to concerns and get feedback on our draft proposal. We have met with timber interests, local elected officials, Tribes, conservation groups, backcountry horsemen, mountain bikers, businesses, community leaders, sport and commercial fishermen and other local residents. Along the way we have found plenty of support, but our work is no where near over.
As we enter this new phase of public consultation, we invite you to join the discussion, voice your support and pass along word to other sympathetic individuals and groups. Please review the latest versions of our draft discussion maps and give us your feedback in the comments section. If you like what you see, please join the more than 1,500 other mostly Olympic Peninsula residents who have voiced their support for the Wild Olympics Campaign by signing on to our online petition here: http://wildolympics.org/take_action .We also welcome you to sign up and join us for one or many of our outings this summer and fall to get out and enjoy our wild natural heritage.
