Step by Step: Conserving the Northern Forest

How do you accomplish a seemingly impossible feat?

Pushing back against the expansion of invasive species, moving boulders in the backcountry, prioritizing the care of our environment in a changing political climate, hiking the twentieth straight mile: these tasks aren’t easy. It takes determination, perseverance, and a clear knowledge that the goal is worth the effort. We watched 120 hikers conquer the Westmore Mountain Challenge and we know the answer.

We do it step by step. And with YOUR help and SUPPORT.

It is YOUR generous support that powers our steps forward toward our shared goal of beautifully maintained trails, sustainable forests, healthy habitats, clean drinking water, and aware citizens who value and protect our natural landscape.

The goal is well worth the effort; please make your donation and help us take the next step.
