As we’ve done for the last two years, InvestigateWest is again crowdfunding to support our 2017 Washington Statehouse Environmental News Project, offering in-depth coverage of the most critical environmental issues facing the Washington Legislature. If you donate today your gift will be doubled or tripled. Unlike Congress, our state legislature is debating environmental policies that may actually become law. Energy and a carbon tax. Toxics.

We’re excited that the 2015 Forests & Economy Symposium in Portland is today! Walk-ins are welcome at 70 NW Couch St. Doors open at 9:15 a.m.
See the final program here. Want to participate in the discussions? Bring your laptop or tablet and join us here, where we’ll be hosting a live blog during the event. Tell us what you think about the issues raised on stage, or submit questions for us to ask the panelists in a special “web-extra” segment to be filmed after the show.
