 Mothers of Nature:
Extraordinary Women Conservationists
of Washington

by Author Dee Arntz
The author will discuss her book and the stories of 28 women together with the conservation issues they tackled, and their accomplishments.
Fay Fuller became the first woman to climb Mt. Rainier in 1890.  Polly  Dyer and Emily Haig worked to maintain and expand Olympic National Park, and later were instrumental in the establishment of the North Cascades National Park  and over 1,000,000 acres Model Toxics Control Act to pick up where federal authority left off.  Six women, nicknamed the Steel Magnolias, ensured the passage of Growth Management Acts in 1990 and 1991 that still control growth to protect Washington's natural beauty.

Deirdre Arntz is a writer and a member of the Audubon Society, a former board member of Seattle Audubon, and former chair of that group's nationally recognized Washington Wetlands Network.  She served as a board member of the Washington Environmental Council.  She has degrees from University of Washington, San Francisco State, and Boston College.
