Hello, my name is Ginger Wireman. I’m on the board of the statewide organization Futurewise. We are the group that brought the Growth Management Act to WA to prevent urban sprawl and protect farms and forests. In the last several years we’ve added affordable housing and transportation to our focus because they are directly related to sprawl, habitat loss, and climate concerns.
Futurewise is 30 years old and we are working to build a board that is both culturally and regionally diverse.
We have no representation from SW Washington. I spoke to the WSU Extension Chair in Clark Co. a while ago and he suggested reaching out to Granges.
I recieve the WSU Magazine and know your Grange Master Mr. Novoselic has done projects related to conservation and wonder if there are others who have a similar conservation bent in your group (recognizing he is probably already very busy)!
If you can think of anyone in your Grange or another in your region, please feel free to share this inquiry.
Thank you so much and stay safe!
