Special donation appeal letter from Jim Davis

December 8, 2010

Dear Friend of the North Cascades,

Your support has made possible all that NCCC has accomplished in the past five decades.  I would like to thank you for supporting our conservation efforts in the North Cascades.

But now it is time to think about a special end of year contribution to NCCC.

NCCC volunteers and staff have been very active in 2010.  We are asking you to consider whether we have met your expectations?  Have we protected the North Cascades as you expected? 

The American Alps Legacy Project has made major strides in educating Washington residents on the benefits of completing the North Cascades National Park.  Special reports on the biodiversity and economic benefits of park expansion have been published.  Successful visits to Washington DC and tours of the American Alps with congressional staff have captured the attention of elected officials and provided the information they need to take action.

NCCC has also promoted new wilderness and wild & scenic rivers in Washington.  We have insisted that the State Wolf Conservation and Management Plan be based on population biology and not crippling compromises with ranchers.  We have led the charge in protecting Reiter State Forest from off-road vehicles and Blanchard State Forest from chainsaws.  We have advocated a scientific approach to Stehekin River management that thwarts heavy-handed engineering fixes to flooding.

We have even taken time to honor the contributions of one of NCCC’s founding board members, with a big 90th birthday party for Polly Dyer. 

We need your support more than ever in this tough fund raising environment.

Visit the NCCC website ( to make your special contribution to NCCC.  OR, copy the special contribution form  below and paste it into a document on your computer, then print it, fill it out and mail in your contribution.

I also strongly encourage you to consider a bequest to NCCC in your Will.  Your bequest will help assure that NCCC is around in future decades to continue the fight against hydropower, mining, logging, biomass removal, motorized recreation, and many other threats to the North Cascades. 

Jim Davis
Executive Director
