CWI GivingTuesday 2019 Call to (Field) Action
December 3, 2019 @ 8:30 pm
A field day to celebrate the nearshore Tuesday 3 December 2019.
The Coastal Watershed Institute celebrates the nearshore on GivingTuesday joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity.
The nearshore is a critical link that supports our wild ecosystems and watersheds. The nearshore is complex but important to understand if we are to save what we love. How do we understand the nearshore? We study it. And then? We work together to restore and protect it. It’s hard, challenging, work. Join us.
We kick off the giving season of 2019 on Tuesday 3 December 2019. Meet us at the Place Road (west Elwha dike) access at 08:30. We’ll spend the day conducting our hard and rewarding long term field work- the basis of how we understand, protect, and promote the nearshore and all that depend on it. What do you need to bring? Chest waders, warm clothing, water and an open good will. Strong backs a must too.

The Coastal Watershed Institute (CWI)
CWI is a small place based environmental non-profit located in Port Angeles Washington. This holiday season we celebrate continuing our hard and rewarding work of over 20 earnest years to understand how our coastal systems work, why they are important, and where and how to conserve and restore wild coastal ecosystems. Our focus areas include: 1) How do forage fish use our nearshore, and what stressors are challenging our forage fish-the base for our marine food chain? 2) How do juvenile salmon use the nearshore, including five years after the world’s largest dam removal? 3) What are our priority next steps as a community to conserve and restore these ecosystems and resources, we all cherish.
We kick off the 15th year of our nearshore field work this giving season with this grateful day of action on 3 December 2019.

GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 14.2 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved.”GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.” givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
