If you’ve ever considered joining, or asking a friend to join, Wilderness Watch, now is the time. Right now, an anonymous donor, a long-time member from Alaska, will match every first-time donation Wilderness Watch receives up to a total of $10,000.
Everybody has a backpacking buddy or an uncle or aunt who’s a “wild preservative,” Edward Abbey’s phrase for a wilderness lover. Point that person to Wilderness Watch's website, and tell him/her it’s time to join.
Sweeten your appeal with a little relevant recitation of Mr. Abbey himself: “Refuse to participate in evil; insist on taking part in what is healthy, generous, and responsible. Stand up, speak out, and when necessary fight back. Get down off the fence and lend a hand, grab a-hold, be a citizen—not a subject.”
Send that first donation now, and our generous wild Alaskan will double it. DONATE on our website (or via Pay Pal) or mail a check to: Wilderness Watch, P.O. Box 9175, Missoula, MT 59807.
