Help us continue this work by attending this important fundraising event.
Enjoy a special treat as Bill McMillan shares his newly released book, May the Rivers Never Sleep, coauthored with his son John. This beautiful book is filled with essays and gorgeous photographs that reflect their lives, largely spent on rivers as anglers, naturalists, and scientists. Please join us to toast this very special occasion with old and new friends.
The Wild Fish Soirée is Wild Fish Conservancy’s principal fundraising event and is a wonderful opportunity to meet and mingle with the Wild Fish Conservancy’s staff, board of directors, and supporters, while bidding on a wide variety of items, including fishing trips abroad, local excursions, weekend getaways, fly fishing equipment, fine wine, gourmet dinners, and much more. The evening begins with a champagne and hors d’oeuvre reception, book signing with Bill McMillan, and silent auction, followed by a gourmet dinner, keynote address, and live auction.
A cutting-edge science and research-based conservation organization headquartered in Duvall, Washington, Wild Fish Conservancy is dedicated to the preservation, protection and restoration of the Pacific Northwest’s wild fish and the fragile ecosystems in which they live.
