#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season. We hope that this #GivingTuesday you'll give back to the wild, native fish and the homewaters that inspire you, that fill you with wonder, and that make the Pacific Northwest the special place we call home.
Share Your Vision for Wild, Native Fish and Your Homewaters this #Giving Tuesday
As the Native Fish Society works across the Pacific Northwest to revive abundant wild, native fish, we're inviting you to share your vision for your homewaters and native fish. What would you like your homewaters to be like in 25 years? What are the lessons you'd share from the past? What do you hope for the special rivers and wild fish that you care about?
Follow this link to send us your letter. We'd love to share your thoughts with the Native Fish Society community as we look toward the challenges and opportunities ahead for wild, native fish!
Here's what Wenatchee River Steward Russ Ricketts wrote about his homewaters,
"It's difficult to imagine a quarter century into the future when faced with the ever quickening rate of social change. When I imagine the Wenatchee river 25 years from now, I can only hope for a future where we as a people choose to embrace our role as stewards of this precious resource and let it shape our decision making. The future of wild salmon in the PNW rests squarely on our shoulders and the choices we make today will resonate for generations. Up until now, salmon in the Columbia river have been managed in a boardroom. It's time for the doors to that closed meeting to be thrown open to allow we the people to add our voices to the conversation. Chelan County recently elected Bob Bugert, an Independent candidate and the former director of the Land Trust, to a county commissioner seat. It's steps like this that will shape not only the future of salmon in the Wenatchee River, but our communities along its banks. There is hope."
At Native Fish Society, we believe that our joined voices and support will make a difference in protecting our wild, native fish! Thank you for kicking off the giving season with #GivingTuesday support for native fish. Happy Holidays!
