As detailed in this article,
we succeeded in securing California Wild and Scenic River designation for 37 miles of the Mokelumne River on June 27, 2018. This has been a 29-year effort, during which time babies were born, friendships blossomed, attacks were made, but all the while, we never gave up. That’s just who we are -- small but mighty, and ready to do the hard work necessary to protect the places we love.
To continue our good efforts into the future, we need to raise funds for our programs and projects and operations. Our goal is to raise $1,000 for every Wild and Scenic River mile, or $37,000. Please consider donating in 37-mile increments, whether that’s $100 per mile ($3,700), $10 per mile ($370) or $1 per mile ($37).
How will we use your money? We’re continuing our collaborative project to explore the potential for reintroducing fall-run Chinook salmon above Pardee Reservoir, working on local land use and water planning, ensuring our Amador County General Plan litigation is fully implemented, carrying out community outreach, creating a new website, working with the Amador-Calaveras Consensus Group to make our watersheds healthier and communities safer, and representing your interests in national forest planning, city planning and regional conservation.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today. You can do that online, on our Foothill Conservancy Facebook page, by responding to the letter you’ll soon receive, or by simply mailing a check to us at Foothill Conservancy, 35 Court St. Ste 1, Jackson, CA 95642. Please remember that your contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
If you donate at least $250 by October 31, we’ll give you a free Mokelumne Wild and Scenic logo Kleen Kanteen stainless cup ($15 value). We can mail you the cup or hold it at the office.
Thank you for your ongoing support! Together, we can continue to keep our towns small, trees tall and rivers wild.
