NATURE Prevails


Behind every species fighting to survive, are the people dedicated to their protection. We persist, so that nature prevails.


Polly Dyer, Seattle Conservationist Dies

Dynamo Polly Dyer was 96 when she died last month in November. A life-long conservationist, she and her husband John worked for passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964. Among the many things Polly was involved in: she helped protect Olympic National Park and the underwater Pacific Coast National Marine Sanctuary, she helped develop and preserve the North Cascades National Park, she had a major role in the creation of the North Cascades Conservation Council, the Puget Sound Alliance, and was a key player in the formation of the Puget Sound Water Quality Authority. A mentor and friend to many, she was also an inspiration in protecting the natural world.
