A Year End Thank You From FSPW

Posted on Thursday, December 27th, 2012 by »

Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness have had a great year! From watching for Wolverines to building new trail or working on existing ones we’ve actively engaged a large corp of volunteer Wilderness Stewards. And we’ve reached new levels of support, including 4,300 Friends!

We want to thank those who donated time or money to make our efforts possible; those who braved the cold to check cameras in our Wolverine/Rare Forest Carnivore study; those who swung a pulaski to build new trail on Star Peak, or improved trail tred on Morris Creek or Little Spar Lake Trail. We want to thank those who wrote comments on the draft forest plan, or who simply spoke up about the Scotchman Peaks to community leaders and neighbors. We want to thank you all for everything you have done to make our advocacy, outreach, education and stewardship of this special place possible!

We enter 2013 with hopes that the new forest plan will strengthen protection for the Scotchmans. We look forward to a new session of congress and with it a renewed hope that the consensus of support we are building will translate into congressional action. We look forward to the early spring release of “Grass//Routes”, a movie documenting our campaign to preserve and protect the Scotchman Peaks as Wilderness.

Your volunteer efforts and your donations are vital to all we do and we hope that you will continue to support us in 2013 with as much enthusiasm as before!

There is still time to make a tax deductible, year end, donation! Or consider a new year’s resolution to help make a legacy of Wilderness possible for the Scotchman Peaks! You may designate your gift to go towards our Wolverine Study, our Documentary Movie or for General Support.
