A Heartfelt Thanks this Holiday Season

Nov. 19, 2021 – Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the harvest and express gratitude for the many blessings in our lives.

Cover image of The Wilderness Land Trust's 2021 Annual Report depicts the rugged North Cascades in Washington state.Here at The Wilderness Land Trust, the gratitude list is long and by no means complete when I describe the hardworking staff and volunteer members of our board; the beautiful and diverse wilderness landscapes where we conduct our work; the prodigious volunteers who assist with property reclamation; and the smart, committed agency staff who ensure the smooth transition of a privately held property over to public ownership.

Most of all, we are blessed by the people who support our work.

THANKS TO YOU, we successfully navigated through the challenges we faced during the pandemic to acquire 667 acres of land that potentially threatened our treasured wildlands with private development, and transfer more than 1,700 acres over to public ownership.

Every land project is an opportunity to protect vital habitat for threatened and endangered species, unify fragmented wildlands to ensure safe animal migration, and conserve large, biologically diverse ecosystems across the American west.

I encourage you to check out our 2021 Annual Report. It is filled with an abundance of success stories solely made possible by people like you who give generously to The Wilderness Land Trust.

I promise you’ll see your own good work reflected in its pages.
