Last month, we invited you to join us in contributing funds to save a section of the Lake Serene Trail from logging. This month we’re happy to report the goal was met! Together with Forterra and other organizations we raised $275,000 to purchase the land from the timber company, ensuring that the area is conserved and recreational access is never again restricted.

Over 600 outdoor enthusiasts contributed to the campaign. Without this effort, the lands adjacent to the Lake Serene Trail would have been logged this year. This would have closed the routes to Lake Serene and Bridal Veil Falls until July 1, 2018 and scarred the surrounding forest for many years to come.

Thank you to everyone who joined the cause, and to our partners at Forterra for leading the charge. Our community rocks!
