Dear Members and Friends,
We couldn’t have imagined a year like this one—but through your continued support we’ve been able to continue our mission, providing a sanctuary not only for our resident animals and wildlife but for the community and visitors seeking the great benefits of the outdoors.
In the spirit of gratitude this season, we are indebted to the wilderness of the Refuge itself. Beneath tall pitch pines, on a carpet of earth, we were still able to host summer camp and educational programs throughout the fall. Old Ice Pond provided a place to paddle and explore while safely distanced, and the trails have given many of us a place to roam freely. As we head into cooler weather, our inspired staff has come up with ways to keep folks outdoors, and when we’re not able to connect in person, we are thankful to be able to “see” you in virtual online programs.
Most of all we are grateful for you. Your generosity makes all of this possible as we creatively navigate this new terrain together. Please consider making a contribution to our Annual Appeal today.
Wishing you a healthy and peaceful season,
Michael J. Nelson
