Help Save Albert Park RGNF From Destruction

I received the following today and thought I'd pass it along:

We can win, but we need your help!

Friends of Wolf Creek
Dec 7, 2015 — In October, we won a major victory when the courts ruled that the US Forest Service had withheld thousands of pages of documents from public scrutiny related to a controversial land exchange on the pass. This ruling forces the Service to fully disclose documents pertaining to this decision.

While this was a great victory, we still have a lot of work to do. Over the next few months, we will be facing off against attorneys for the Forest Service and Red McCombs. If we prevail, the "village" will be stopped in its tracks while the Forest Service is forced to conduct a thorough and transparent study of the environmental impacts of the development. We know that a real study of these impacts will give us the ammunition we need to stop this development forever.

We could use your help in many different ways. We could use your help sharing this petition with your friends and colleagues. We could use your help spreading the messages relating to Wolf Creek pass on social media ( And we could use your donations of money or time.

Thanks to a generous donor we have an opportunity to raise the resources needed to fight this court battle. Every donation given between now and December 8 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000. So far, we've secured 75% of that match, but we could still secure $2,500 more.

Please help us achieve the funding we need to end this battle once and for all by donating at today! If you schedule your donation for Colorado Gives Day (December 8th) you can stretch your dollar further as Colorado Gives Day has a $1 Million Incentive Fund split between participating nonprofits!

Be sure to make note in the special instructions that your gift is for the Friends of Wolf Creek to ensure that your donation will be matched.
