It’s Giving Tuesday! Give some green to save some Green!

Dear Finn Hill neighbor,

We’re writing on the eve of Giving Tuesday, and we hope you’ll join us in making a tax deductible gift tomorrow to save over 4 acres of woodlands on the south east slope of Finn Hill. That purchase will nearly double the size of Juanita Heights Park and will be a big step toward completing a forested path – the Billy Goat Trail – from the top of Goat Hill to Juanita Beach.

FHNA has negotiated an option to acquire the land – it was previously on the market for development. And the City and County have earmarked funds for the purchase – but we need your help to close the deal. We want to raise $10,000 on Giving Tuesday, November 28.

FHNA has advocated to reduce zoning densities and tighten protections for trees in the Holmes Point area. But the best way to preserve green space is to buy it for parkland. That’s what this fundraising effort is all about: 100% of your donation will be used to acquire woodlands for parks – forever. We’re starting with the Billy Goat Trail. It’s the first link to a Green Loop of trails and open space that will one day circle Finn Hill.

It will take time to complete this project. But we have a golden opportunity to start right now.

Goat Hill residents will match the first $2500 that you and other neighbors contribute. Will you join us? Go to the FHNA website and follow the donation directions.

Please donate on Giving Tuesday to leave a legacy of woods and trails right where you live. If we all pitch in, we can get government support for further purchases…and we can create something truly amazing.

Thanks!
