Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to giving to support the organizations you care about. We invite you to give local--our Friends of the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument, a non-profit dedicated to spreading awareness and educating the public about the biodiversity in the region.
     Launching on Tuesday December 1st, our season of giving is kicking off, and we need your help to reach our goal of $3,000!
     Our thanks go to an anonymous donor for matching all donations that are over $30. We are honored to have your support, and the opportunity to make every dollar go twice as far in our mission to educate, research, and spread awareness about our local National Monument. 
     Cascade—Siskiyou National Monument is located at the crossroads of the Siskiyou, Klamath, and Cascade Mountain ranges in Southern Oregon. The convergence brings together the different rock strata, plant, and animal communities of each region creating an incredibly varied and diverse landscape.

Your donation supports our education, research, and conservation efforts for the Monument. 
     Education: providing learning opportunities for all ages so we can understand the importance of Biodiversity. Education programs include seasonal Hike & Learns for the community, as well as bus funds for Fall in the Field, which focuses on getting local school students between 2nd and 8th grade to explore the Monument.
     Research: expanding our knowledge of sciences, arts, and humanities about the benefits of our monument. Funding supports the Student Research Fund, providing small grants for students to gather data, explore, and learn more about the monument.
     Conservation & Preservation: encouraging awareness and learning about the history and continued evolution of the Monument in relation to climate change, and cultural significance.
     Exploration and Discovery: exploring and appreciating the monument as a citizen scientist to become better stewards of our public lands.
