Help Us Win $5,000!

The companies Patagonia and Moosejaw love us so much that they picked us, along with 8 other groups in the nation, to have a chance at a $5,000 donation! But our members and supporters will be the ones to help us get that dough. Click on the link below, then select the donate button. Select our group, of course!, and donate as much as you can spare. The group who raises the most by May 4th at 11:59pm will be the recipients of $5,000. We are so lucky to have this opportunity and are competing with big groups like the Nature Conservancy, who are cool too! But smaller groups like us can use the money more than bigger groups. After you donate, please post the link on your Facebook wall and encourage your friends to donate too!

Benefit Concert for Land Preservation

The parcel is located by the north entrance of the McCormick Wilderness Area and has old growth white pines, wetlands, and groves of cedar. We hope you will help us achieve this goal by coming to our next benefit concert. More…
