Inside Conservation Northwest Conservation Northwest protects and connects old-growth forests and other wild areas from the Washington Coast to the BC Rockies: vital to a healthy future for us, our children, and wildlife. Conservation Northwest is excited to announce the creation of our new board of advisors. We have a wonderful staff and an excellent board of directors, and creation of the advisory board provides valuable experience and additional strategic input through new formal positions. The goal is to enhance engagement from key community leaders. Many of these folks have been long-term mentors already—counseling us on conservation science issues, tribal and First Nations partnerships, communications ap- proaches, and much more. An advisory board allows us to formally recognize these contributors and maximize their ef- forts and expertise. A warm welcome to our new board of advisors; we look for- ward to your support!

Fire can be devastating for people, wildlife, and wildlands. But it is also a natural process that is vital for healthy ecosystems. As major fires become more common due to unsustainable forest practices and a changing climate, the need to improve the way we manage both wildfires and wildlands is becoming even more critical.
