Join the Washington Wildlife & Recreation Coalition for breakfast for our 30th Anniversary annual breakfast at The Westin Seattle on September 19, 2019. Together, we will celebrate the incredible work of the Coalition and and all of our wonderful partners.

The Coalition represents hundreds of the most diverse and bipartisan organizations and individuals imaginable. We provide a unified voice for public funding of conservation and outdoor recreation projects across our beautiful state. Come learn about some of the projects your support has made possible and help us build toward even greater success in the years to come!

The breakfast is free to attend, and the minimum suggested donation is $150. To make a donation in advance of the breakfast, please click here or call us at (206)748-0082.

We know great leaders when we see them.


That's why each year, the Coalition invites our supporters for breakfast to honor leaders from across the state who make Washington a wilder, healthier, and overall better place to live. From advocates with lifetime legacies to those whose work is just getting started, we know that leaders come from across the state and from every walk of life.

We recognize the outstanding contributions of lifetime conservation champions with the Joan Thomas Award. The award honors those who have worked tirelessly throughout their lifetimes to ensure the next generation has access to the same beautiful parks, wildlife habitat and working farms that we enjoy today. This year, the Coalition is pleased to present the Joan Thomas award to Sally Jewell.

The Coalition is also excited to honor Teresa Bendito, Kaiwen Lee and Alberto Rodriguez -- three incredible young leaders who are empowering their communities and bringing the outdoors closer to home. They advocate for clean water, engage youth with opportunities, and create culturally relevant spaces. The Coalition is looking FORWARD, and the future of our outdoors is in good hands. Learn more about our honorees here.
