Upcoming activist opportunties

If you are keen on wanting to get involved in environmental protection of the Olympic Peninsula, here’s some ways to make your voice heard. From Benjamin Greuel, of the Sierra Club. Good opportunities if you are not participating in some of this weeks  Jefferson County activities listed elsewhere on the site.

Over the last number of months, the Sierra Club, Olympics Park Associates, Olympic Forest Coalition and partner organizations have
been working to articulate a conservation vision for the Olympic Peninsula. We are now in a position to gather your input on a variety of ways to permanently protect our pristine Peninsula watersheds. Tim McNulty of the Olympic Park Associates asked me to forward you an invitation to attend a Wild Olympics Activist Workshop in your area to hear about how you can get involved in a new exciting campaign to protect our beloved forests and rivers on the Olympic Peninsula.
