Here is your invitation to the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy's Third Annual Fundraiser Dinner

Please join us for a fun filled, afternoon party this May 20th at the Wilridge Winery.  Our annual event is held in a beautiful outdoor setting with live music, great food and local wine.  This is your opportunity to help us conserve some of the most precious native shrub-steppe area in Central Washington.  It is home of many common and rare native plants, birds and animals of our region.  We hope to pass on its most interesting geological, historical and cultural past to future generations.

This once-a-year event provides the major supporting financial resources to help us provide this unique, in-town “wilderness” for everyone in our community.  Please help us make it work!

Special Treat: Come and taste the new, all organic beer made by the Fremont Brewing Company of Seattle using organic hops grown in Cowiche Canyon!
