We are most grateful to our young leaders who have blazed trails on behalf of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument! This year Board member Alexander Harding proposed that we partner with Giving Tuesday, a national effort to promote charitable giving; and she is leading the way through our Facebook page.
      “Clean Air and Clean Water” are simple reasons for having conservation lands as explained by Andy Kerr, at the Wilderness 50 celebration talk on the Southern Oregon University campus. On Giving Tuesday, we invite you to give online to the Friends of Cascade Siskiyou; and tell your circle of friends and family.
     Share why the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is a special place for you. Post onto Facebook a photo; or email your story. Maybe you study frogs or dragonflies, write or draw, or you just enjoy the endless vistas of valleys, forests, and near-by volcanoes of the Cascade Range. 
     You will be creating a legacy in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument for generations. We couldn’t do this important work without you.  Your generous donation will be matched dollar for dollar from the Conservation Lands Foundation (CLF), a nationwide foundation dedicated to safeguarding the National Conservation Lands. When we raise $3,000 in new donations this year, CLF will match this 1:1 effort by awarding us a $3,000 no-strings attached grant.
