Hello Everyone,

I have some great news to share regarding our Golden paintbrush recovery (a vital piece to our overall prairie restoration).  After this past summer's successful count of flowering plants, we only have 2 more years to go till our population is considered fully recovered.  Not only that, but our population is currently the largest recovery population in Washington!

We have just recently been awarded an additional year of funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to continue to improve and increase our population, as well as several populations around the Puget Sound.  We are grateful that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife trusts us with government funds, and we hope you will continue to trust us with your support as well.  There is still much to be done!

Warm Regards,


p.s. If you live in Western Washington, we are holding our 4th Annual Whidbey Raptor Day event.  September 21, from 1pm - 3pm.  Get up close an personal with these beautiful hunters of the air.  There are many, many other wonderful events happening on Whidbey Island that same weekend, so a trip over would be well worth it! (Kit Festival, Tour de Whidbey race, Whidbey Island Farm Tour, and more).
