Fundraising Update: $179,197 raised, $20,833 more needed by Aug. 29 to save an acre of Savary forest

We are excited to share the latest in our efforts to acquire land for conservation on Savary Island.

Thanks to those who attended our fundraiser, Savarystock on Saturday July 27, where we launched the SAVE THIS FOREST CAMPAIGN. 

This acre of forest land at 1306 Savary Island Road will help protect a Red-listed (highest risk) ecological community and will also protect additional elements of the Coastal Douglas Fir biogeoclimatic zone, and preserve some wildness on the Savary Island Road.  Many enjoy this walk or ride through the forest.

To save this forest, we needed to raise $200,000.  The good news is that by working with the neighbourhood and other donors over the last few months, we raised $160,000 towards the purchase.  Savarystock auctions raised another $19,167 towards the SAVE THIS FOREST CAMPAIGN.  

We are very close to reaching the goal to protect this acre forever. I hope you will consider a donation. 

We still need another $20,833. by August 29 to complete this deal. 

Donations are tax deductible and may be made by cheque to SILT Box 141, Lund, BC V0N 2G0. 

Donations may be made at the SILT Tent at the Savary Island Farmers Market on Tuesdays.
