Happy Solstice!

On this, the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, I am giving thanks for all the people and organizations I know who bring light to the world. These individuals and efforts give me hope that the light will return, as each of us tries in our modest way to make the world more beautiful, just, and secure—for all the creatures who call this planet home.

I feel privileged to serve as a board member of Northeast Wilderness Trust because I can see, firsthand, the positive outcomes when caring people join their energies to serve a clear and compelling organizational mission. The small staff and volunteer board of the Trust are deeply committed to saving forever-wild habitat for nature and people.

Acre by acre, project by project, the gains add up. It’s fun to think of the charismatic residents of these wilderness areas—moose and black bears and Blackburnian warblers. But I also appreciate the plain and ordinary when visiting Wilderness Trust preserves . . . . the maples and birches, the Christmas ferns, the moss-covered rocks. Real places, now protected, that need not fear the bulldozers of tomorrow.

Conserving wild habitat is tangible, practical, and crucial work, and that’s why our family supports the Trust each year.  And I hope that you, too, will consider making (with thanks to those who have done so already) an end-of-year gift to support the Trust’s efforts to sustain beauty and biodiversity in the Northeast.

With gratitude for your support,

Tom Butler
President, Northeast Wilderness Trust
