Since we launched the campaign to save Van Arken in October 2016, we have raised over a half a million dollars! But we still have a long way to go and need your support today.
We are working to conserve 1,600 acres in the headwaters of the Mattole (the Van Arken watershed with neighboring headwaters of McKee Creek). The total purchase price $9 million. Every dollar helps!
A local landowner came up with the idea of "funding an acre" for $5,500. Many people have come forward to fund an acre, either all at once, or pledging to do so over the next 4 years ($1,375/year). We encourage you to do the same and reach out to your friends and family to become a part of the Fund an Acre Family.
Support from friends like YOU is vital to leverage grants and attract large funders!!
