Community partners: gotta recognize!

Posted by: Julia Swan

As we prepare to open Arctic Wings: Miracle of Migration (more on that exhibit later) and continue to show The Last Polar Bear: Facing the Truth of a Warming World, I find myself very grateful for the organizations that have become community partners with the Burke for these two wildlife photography exhibits.

Community partners do a lot for the museum and are always very gracious about spreading the word to their own audiences about Burke exhibits and programs. I know I speak for my colleagues when I say that working with community partners is always a pleasure. To that end, I find it appropriate to recognize our community partners for both Arctic Wings and The Last Polar Bear:

Alaska Coalition of Washington
UW Botanic Gardens
Alaska Wilderness League
Eastside Audubon
Federation of Western Outdoor Clubs
King County Library System
Museum of History and Industry
Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust
National Parks Conservation Association- NW Region
North Cascades Conservation Council
National Wildlife Foundation (Western Region)
North Cascades Institute
Seattle Climate Action Now
Seattle Audubon Society
Sierra Club
Tahoma Audubon Society

Washington Wilderness Coalition

If you visit the museum you will be able to pick up more information about most of these fabulous organizations. Thanks again partners!
