july 2020 winners

First Place:

Wild Salmon Center - Portland, OR

 

Wild Salmon Center (WSC) works to conserve the most productive and intact wild salmon ecosystems around the Pacific Rim—from the Pacific Northwest to Alaska to the Russian Far East. As a “keystone species” wild salmon support an expansive and diverse web of life, ranging from brown bears to orcas to eagles, and they are central to cultures and communities across the North Pacific. Where wild salmon runs are healthy, whole watersheds - and everything in them - flourish.

These funds will support WSC’s efforts to safeguard the Bristol Bay watershed in Alaska, one of the most important salmon fisheries on Earth. Up to 60 million wild salmon return to Bristol Bay each year, supporting 14,000 jobs, a $1.5 billion fishing industry, and Alaskan communities that have relied on salmon for generations. However, the Bristol Bay fishery is currently threatened by the proposed Pebble Mine, a project planned at its headwaters that could put this extraordinary ecosystem at risk.

Second Place:

Literacy for Environmental Justice - San Francisco, CA

 

Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) is an environmental education and youth empowerment organization created specifically to address the ecological and health concerns of Bayview, Hunters Point and the surrounding communities of southeast San Francisco. LEJ is committed to  creating urban greening, eco-literacy, community stewardship and workforce development opportunities that directly engage and support local residents in securing a healthier future. The glassybaby baby grant will help support the Eco-Apprentice Program. This is a multi-track paid internship for young adults ages 18-25, in Bayview Hunters Point. The Eco-Apprentices are mentored to hone their career interests, develop professional skills, and seek future employment and academic objectives. Eco-Apprentices learn highly specialized skills that can immediately translate to work and careers in ecological restoration and community-based organizations.

Third Place:

The Arboretum Foundation - Seattle, WA

 

The Arboretum Foundation raises vital funds to protect and enhance Washington Park Arboretum, a 230-acre urban oasis of woodlands, wetlands, gardens, and walking trails in the heart of Seattle. The Arboretum has long been a place of respite and recreation for the region; during the COVID crisis, it has also become a tremendous source of solace. Here, students, volunteers, and visitors can engage deeply with nature and learn about the importance of protecting their natural resources—and about how biodiversity contributes to a healthier, climate-resilient planet. The Arboretum Foundation will use its glassybaby baby grant to help fund the Arboretum’s horticulture, environmental education, and volunteer programs, which provide a vital connection between our community and the natural world.
