On cool December days, as the solstice approaches, and winter sets in, we reflect on family, friends, community, and our many blessings. I am most thankful for the vast open spaces, natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and recreational opportunities in our community.
Many of you take the time to make year-end gifts to your favorite nonprofits. We hope that you will include the
Eagle Valley Land Trust
in your year-end giving to help ensure that EVLT can continue to conserve our cherished lands.
