BENEFITING: Conservation Lands Foundation
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2015
As we near the end of 2015, we thank you for the accomplishments you’ve made possible, and ask you to give your year-end gift so we can keep supporting our local partners around the West who work every day to protect, restore and expand America’s National Conservation Lands.
Thanks to you, and the collective efforts of our local partners, the National Conservation Lands expanded by an astounding 5 million acres in 2015! In July, President Obama proclaimed the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument in northern California and the Basin and Range National Monument southern Nevada. And just three weeks ago, the Bureau of Land Management announced its decision to add 3.9 acres of the most ecologically, culturally and recreationally significant lands within the California Desert to the National Conservation Lands. This would not have been possible without our constant advocacy and the diverse voices who came together to conserve these special places.
Because our local partners count on us, we count on you.
Every dollar you give to the Conservation Lands Foundation in December will have twice the impact because generous donors are providing a dollar-for-dollar match up to $10,000. Your gift will support what matters most – empowering groups led by local citizen-advocates who are working every day to protect the places where wildlife thrives, cultural artifacts tell the stories of America’s ancestors and natural wonders inspire our adventures.
In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, we are giving too! December 1st kicks off a full month during which we’re giving away Osprey daypacks!
For every $10 contributed to the Conservation Lands Foundation on #GivingTuesday, you’ll be entered into a drawing ($100 = 10 entries!) to win an Osprey Pulsar 30 daypack. We’ll have another drawing each week in December, giving you four more chances to win!
The clock is ticking and every dollar counts.
As we look ahead to 2016, the final year of the Obama Administration, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to protect our most ecologically and culturally important places as national monuments, including southeastern Utah’s Bears Ears region, the most significant unprotected cultural landscape in our nation with over 100,000 archaeological sites, alpine peaks, sandstone towers and vast canyons.
We only have until December 31st—please join us in meeting our match of $10,000.
From all of us at the Conservation Lands Foundation - thank you for conserving America’s heritage through your support.
P.S. Remember—a $50 donation to the Conservation Lands Foundation in December turns into $100—but only until December 31st. Please make your donation today and join us in this once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure that our most important and threatened public lands are protected now, for future generations.
