You are here: home   40years   Parties and Events   Parties   Seattle, WA

Our 40th anniversary events are all about connecting with you, our readers!

This year, to celebrate the momentous occasion of High Country News turning 40, we plan to throw a HUGE weeklong party: at least 40 FUNdraising parties (40 parties for 40 years) to be exact. To be successful, we need your help to host or attend a party in your town (the week of Earth Day, April 17th-25th, 2010) that brings together your local community of High Country News fans and newcomers alike.

This feisty little nonprofit organization has been through a lot over the years, and we wouldn’t be here without you. So join our cause to sustain High Country News for the next 40 years and beyond:

  • introduce High Country News to new readers
  • grow our community of "People who care about the West"
  • fundraise for our Research Fund, which pays our reporters and photographers to get on the ground in the West
