We’ve reached our goal! Land Trust friends, members, nature lovers, and recreationalists made it possible to protect 122 acres of forested mountain land on Monte Sano. Collectively, you raised all $305,000 needed to purchase this property, six months before our deadline. There are so many to thank for making this conservation project successful. Many of our Land Trust members gave additional gifts to support this campaign. And many of you gave for the very first time. In particular, Jerry and Butch Damson, Bob Goss, John and Cindy Markushewski, and two additional lead donors stepped up to motivate and challenge others to be a part of the effort.
Your combined support will expand preserved land on the mountain, protect a popular portion of hiking trails (part of the State Park trail system – Panthers Knob and Logan Point Trails), and ensure the preservation of valuable wildlife habitat. Thank you so much for your outstanding generosity! We are truly grateful. With the necessary funds now committed, we will begin preparations to close on the property and provide an update as soon as we have news to share!
