Spring Forward for Conservation

When Daylight Savings Time came around this year, the phrase “Spring Forward” seemed like it was about more than clocks. There is a lot of ground to cover and now is our moment to make significant leaps for our community’s health and well-being by investing in nature and conservation. Experts from the World Health Organization agree and recently released their “Manifesto for a Healthy Recovery from COVID-19.” Their very first prescription? To protect and preserve the source of human health: nature.

We’ve recently launched our Spring Forward for Conservation campaign where a generous donor has offered to match your gift dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000. Will you join us in our effort by making a gift to Palmer Land Conservancy today?

Our public parks and open spaces continue to see record use and we are proud of the role we play in protecting these cherished places that are an open resource available to all. But while these beautiful outdoor spaces are free to use, they aren’t free to protect. Will you consider a gift to Palmer today to help us fulfill our mission of protecting 20 of your favorite parks and open spaces such as Bear Creek Regional Park, Section 16, and Ute Valley Open Space, forever? 

Your gift today will ensure that Palmer can continue to protect nature and the land that provides outdoor recreation opportunities to keep us strong, local food to nourish our bodies, and beautiful scenery to nurture our hearts and minds.
