Landmark Legacy Circle member

“I dreamed of a wilderness property to protect and retreat to since I was in college. Finding a place this magical was literally a dream come true, but I knew my stewardship of it represented only a blink of an eye. Donating it to the Conservancy was part of my plan from the beginning, a decision that puts the land in trusted hands far beyond my lifetime.”
