Conservation NW – People who do real work

Tricie and I spent last weekend in the Okanogan looking at the work of the local land trust and of Conservation NW, the umbrella organization that is working to protect a corridor between the Rockies and the Cascades. It’s an amazing place. Here are a couple of pictures from the trip – one mine, two others from a Park Ranger at a wildlife area a couple of miles from where we stayed.

We saw over 30 different types of birds in a 3-hour tour. The second photo from Assistant Manager Justin Haug is one of the many songbirds. The last picture is one of mine – a casual snapshot as we drove along Palmer Lake.
