Y2Y newsletter
February 2018

This edition of our digital newsletter covers what's been happening recently in the Yellowstone to Yukon region, from northern British Columbia to Idaho's Kootenai valley. 

As always, thank you for your support. From sharing social media posts, writing letters to bring change or donating your time or funds, we appreciate it.  Your ongoing support makes our big, bold vision possible.  

Thank you and hope you enjoy the newsletter. 

Warmest regards,

Aerin Jacob Q&A with Y2Y's conservation scientist

Why is Dr. Aerin Jacob so passionate about the Yellowstone to Yukon region? 

Show some love for Alberta_s headwaters
Take action for Alberta's Bighorn
The Bighorn Backcountry is one of Alberta's last large, intact wilderness areas. This unprotected landscape provides 88 percent of the water in the North Saskatchewan River, a river that delivers water to more than a million people in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

We have an opportunity right now to protect wildlife, water and non-motorized recreation opportunities by asking the province to create a wildland provincial park.

If you care about the health of Alberta's headwaters and the future of water, wildlife, and wilderness recreation, please let Minister Shannon Phillips know by sending your comment to her via our letter writing tool. Consider it a love letter to an important area. 

Show some love for Alberta's headwaters now. And if you already have, we thank you!
