CONSERVATION GROUPS -- Tim Coleman of Republic, who's been leading conservation efforts for the Columbia Highlands area for more than two decades, has been laid off by Conservation Northwest.

"I've resumed my old role as executive director at Kettle Range Conservation Group," he said. 

The KRCG had essentially merged with Conservation Northwest years ago to combine efforts for promoting wilderness designation on portions of the Kettle Range and Selkirk Mountains.
