BRG Nature Quest!
Greetings Outdoor Enthusiasts! You’re all welcome to join our Challenge for Charities Nature Quest. Starting September 1st and ending September 7th, 2020 search out the following 10 places, objects, and living things commonly found near Lander and take a photo of each: Aspen, Mule Deer, Bam Bam, Pine Tree, Lichens, Rise of the Sinks, A Disappearing Middle Fork of the Popo Agie, Wildlife Scat, Chokecherries, and a Wildlife Track.
The first three persons to post correct photos of all 10 on BRG’s Facebook messenger or email ([email protected]) will win prizes.
This is BRG’s fifth year taking part in the Lander Community Foundation’s Challenge for Charities Fundraiser. All contributions received by September 15th are matched by the Lander Community Foundation. Help BRG fulfill our mission of restoring our local bighorn sheep herd to its former prominence. Use the link at the bottom of the post to donate and be sure to write BRG as the Recipient.
The power of your donation can truly change the world for our area Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.
The mission of The Nature Conservancy in Wyoming is to preserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. As part of our participation in the Challenge for Charities, we’ll be showcasing our conservation work in the Lander area daily through videos and other content on our Facebook page.
During our week-long “tour” of our local work, we’ll show how your support enables us to:
- Protect and restore the Popo Agie River, partnering with the Healthy Rivers Initiative
- Apply innovative techniques, such as sagebrush “seed pods,” to restore sagebrush country and improve reclamation of native plants
- Build like beavers to bring back wetlands, enhancing our streams and improving watershed resilience to climate change
We hope you join us in learning what TNC Wyoming is doing in our community!
Joe LeFevre & Amara Fehring present a video telling the story of Almost Home Wyoming
Almost Home Wyoming chose to do a video presentation for Challenge for Charities and boy is it a great one! It features Joe Lefevre of Low Water String Band fame, and his wife, Amara Fehring, singing and producing a song to tell our story.
Our organization is dedicated to securing safe housing for the homeless in our area. Almost 100% of our fundraising dollars goes towards rent or deposits for our clients.
We appreciate the Lander Community Foundation for their wonderful efforts to help local charities make Lander the best it can be! Please donate today and your donation will be matched through September 15!
