Brockway Mountain Challenge
December 2019: Our #GivingTuesday challenge was a great success! Thank you to the more than 50 people who helped us kick off this fundraising campaign and a special thanks to the generous donors who agreed to match gifts at this year's Annual Recognition Dinner and the #GivingTuesday campaign. Because of this tremendous support, we raised over $22,000 in one month and are well-positioned to acquire an additional 42 acres on Brockway Mountain in the Keweenaw in 2020.
Acquiring these 42 acres would protect:
- Rare species such as heart-leaved arnica and other rare plants;
- An imperiled natural community known as a 'northern bald', which is characterized by sparse vegetation and areas of exposed bedrock;
- Ideal habitat for migrating raptors and other birds; and
- A spectacular view of Lake Superior
The addition of this property would also expand MNA/s existing sanctuaries and contiguous acreage on Brockway Mountain to nearly 600 acres!
Because of all of our wonderful donors so far, we are that much closer to raising the needed $64,000 to purchase the property in 2020--now with less than $42,000 to go! Although the GivingTuesday challenge is over, you can still contribute to protect this special place.
