With a gift to the Annual Campaign, you can conserve and care for special places where children can spend more time outside, where we can hike and bike, and where fish and wildlife can thrive.
This summer on a Land Trust outing, a young girl named Marisol spotted movement on a ledge below Saddle Rock. Raising binoculars to her eyes, she focused them like she had just learned that morning. Marisol realized: “There are baby birds on the ledge! I see two fluffy heads.” She and her fellow students were captivated watching young peregrine falcons.
She made an important connection to Saddle Rock that day – one that could last a lifetime.
Because of support from Land Trust members, Saddle Rock is permanently protected and kids like Marisol can discover the joys of the natural world. Let’s work together to protect places like these for future generations – of both falcons and children – for years to come.
You can help protect and care for the special places you love with a gift to the Annual Campaign.
Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $75,000, thanks to the Icicle Fund and generous commitments for matching contributions from Land Trust Board and Leadership Circle members.
Your gift will support over a dozen exciting new projects where people and wildlife can thrive, including:
- Preserving Douglas County habitat with one of only two remaining greater sage-grouse populations left in Washington State;
- Permanently protecting a large Cashmere area property with room for plants and animals to adjust to the changing climate – and with new public trails;
- Buying and restoring land along our rivers, lakes and streams in the Entiat and Wenatchee River valleys;
- Continuing to replant native shrubs, grasses and wildflowers, and controlling invasive weeds in the areas burned by the 2012 and 2015 fires, restoring the beautiful diversity that we enjoy and that wildlife needs.
You can double your impact by making a gift today!
Your gift will make a lasting mark on the special places that inspire us in Chelan and Douglas counties.
Your support not only helps protect new places, it helps expand your love of these places to the larger community. When more people connect with and care about these special landscapes, they too will preserve what you value.
One day, Marisol will grow up. No matter what path she takes in life, one thing is certain – she’s more likely to want to protect nature because of the connection she made that day watching young falcons at Saddle Rock.
Please help protect and care for remarkable places where we experience something bigger than ourselves by making a gift to the Land Trust Annual Campaign this fall. If you respond by December 31, your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar up to $75,000, by the Icicle Fund and Land Trust Board and Leadership circle members.
