Welcome 2019! The sun has come up on 2019, and we at Wild Connections have a deep sense of satisfaction and gratitude for the completion of another full year protecting and preserving wildlands and wildlife. We are especially grateful for the financial support at the end of the year, and preliminary figures say we topped $20,000. If you missed the midnight deadline, you can still send a check dated Dec 31, 2018 during this first week of January.
Just as we need strong backs to help restore impacted public lands to their natural condition,we need a strong financial base to support the work ahead of us in 2019. Your donations will buy
skilled technical expertise to address climate change in our region
continuing roadless area defense in areas we have protected for over 24 years
supplies and equipment for upcoming restoration projects
staff support for important land planning processes that need from your input
and much more.
Every donation makes an impact no matter the size! Our sincere thanks to those who have donated. You've helped the sun rise in 2019 on a bright future for public lands in central Colorado!
Best wishes for 2019, Jim, Misi, John, Kristin, Alison, Claude, Deb, Karl, Cara, Jean, and John
