NPCA Centenial Challenge Forum in Seattle Tonight

For those of you that live in the Seattle area, you might be interested in this forum happening at the downtown REI tonight from 6 - 8. Here are the details:

NPCA Seattle Forum

I realize that the text is a bit small in that image, sorry. The "Why" section above reads: "In August, Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne announced a plan for the 10-year-long National Park Centennial Challenge, which will provide much-needed help for our national parks. National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) has developed 5 Ways America Can Fix Our National Parks, starting with a significant funding increase for parks in next year's budget. Join us for a panel discussion about the challenges facing our parks and the tremendous opportunity we have to -- Restore * Reinvest * Reinvigorate * Research * Represent -- our national parks and protect them for future generations!"

I've heard today that both Congressman Dicks and Baird have confirmed their place on the panel tonight. I plan on attending. If there is anything of interest to report, I'll have it here on Park Remark this week.
