“What it will take to make a healthy forest?: The Nature Conservancy’s vision for the East Cascades”
Introduced by: Bob Holert
The forests of the East Cascades are very sick, and one symptom is that the forest has too many trees. The Nature Conservancy’s recent acquisition of 48,000 acres in Kittitas County creates an opportunity to change the way the forest is managed, but there are significant challenges to overcome. John will share those challenges and possible solutions during his presentation.

Need Some Help With Chores?
Who You Gonna Call…?
Our multi-talented exchange student, Leo, needs to raise $900 for his Western Safari trip and is ready, willing and able to work for it! Leo will mow your lawn, wash your car, do office work, chop wood, move furniture or babysit and you decide how much to pay. What a deal — it just doesn’t get any better than this!

Dear Bellevue Breakfast Rotarians,
The S.T.E.P.S organization has been volunteering at Sammamish High School, raising money and granting funding to school programs for over 25 years.
Our organization is planning a fundraising auction event on March 26th. I am asking for donations to auction off at this event. Some items we can use are a well pet visit, round of golf, gift cards, bottle(s) of wine, and photography services. We are grateful for any donation you or your business are able to provide. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
