MVSTA is proud to support the Methow Conservancy, a local, nonprofit organization (like us) dedicated to inspiring people to care for and conserve the land of the Methow Valley. The Conservancy's Imagine the Methow: The Campaign for Conservation is our opportunity to protect the best wildlife habitat, working farms, and scenic views of the Methow Valley forever. The Methow Conservancy's and MVSTA's mission are closely aligned. Check out all the Methow Conservancy has done for recreation here.
Please, do something extraordinary this summer – make a donation of any amount to help the Conservancy inspire 1,000 donations by the end of September! With a challenge grant of $100,000 a donation of any amount leverages $100. Please join us in our support of this beautiful valley and its open spaces. Visit www.imaginethemethow.org to learn more and to make a contribution today.
