2021 Environmental Heroes
June 9, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
An online fundraiser & celebration featuring Rep. Debra Lekanoff & Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest
The central Salish Sea region is a place unlike any other. It is a tapestry of diverse ecosystems and varied communities woven together, creating an unmistakable landscape. From windswept mountain alpine to vibrant seabeds, this place embodies some of the greatest wonder the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Every year, we celebrate outstanding members of the community who have been vital in protecting this place we love.
This year, we invite you to join us for a virtual night of powerful stories from our 2021 Environmental Heroes, three passionate defenders of our region’s natural resources, iconic species and vibrant communities. Garner inspiration from Heroes Darrell Hillaire, Mary Ruth Holder and London Fletcher, as well as from keynote speaker Rep. Debra Lekanoff, and help raise critical funds for local climate and environmental action. Also joining us is Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest, who will treat us to a brand-new poem created with inspiration from words YOU share when you RSVP for the event below.
