Thanks To All “Idaho Gives” Donors!

Posted on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 by »

A big shout-out to all of the generous supporters who donated to the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness through the Idaho Gives online fundraising campaign. Because of you, we are able to do even more to secure protection for the pristine gem that we all love. We also had a great time at the Idaho Pour Authority, where supporters from NGO’s across Bonner County gathered to celebrate the campaign’s success. Thanks to everyone there, fresh and familiar faces alike!
