Happy New Year from Friends of Panthertown

Happy New Year!

All of us at Friends of Panthertown wish you and your family much laughter and joy, good health and great cheer in 2013. May your year ahead bring you safe adventures and clear trails. We thank you very much for your support over this last year.

In the last year our incredible trail work teams have contributed over 1,000 volunteer hours helping to maintain 30 miles of trails, bridges, staircases, and structures spread out over 6,295 acres in Panthertown Valley. Thanks to our stellar trail work crew leaders we have trained many new forest stewards and look forward to working with each of them in the coming year.

Today is your last day of 2012 to make a tax-deductible gift to support Friends of Panthertown in our mission to work in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service to conserve this outstanding natural resource while improving the quality and experience of recreational opportunities in Panthertown Valley.

Your tax-deductible contribution will directly help us to protect this incredibly prized natural resource we all love so much.

In 2013 we have many projects in the works including re-routing the very popular Wilderness Falls Trail to provide safer access for all to enjoy the waterfall and creek below. Perhaps you would care to join us on the trails at one of our upcoming work days. We love our volunteers!

Your support is essential so that Friends of Panthertown can continue the work we do to ensure a protected forest with recreational opportunities for all to enjoy in Panthertown for generations to come. Thank you again for your continued support.

Happy trails,
