Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Fall! from Volcan Mountain

Not only is fall in full swing for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, but the morning after Thanksgiving brought a dusting of snow to Volcan Mountain as well! From the board and staff of the Volcan Mountain Foundation, we are grateful to all of your gifts of time, treasure and talent to protect and care for the Volcan Mountain Range--THANK YOU!

There are still some of the fall colors on the oaks and sycamores even as Julian gets ready for the color and festivity of the huge Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Pioneer Park in the historic Julian town site.

As fall is upon us, and we look around and celebrate fall and abundance, we also look ahead and back at giving and thanks. Among the many gift choices that you will make this season, we hope that you will remember to give generously to protect Volcan Mountain with your tax-deductible gift to the Volcan Mountain Foundation.

Your contributions for VMF's quarter century of work are critical to conserving the Volcan Mountain Range, and help to ensure that the vital watershed sources, wild lands and wildlife of the Volcan Mountain Range remain protected, pristine and wondrous for all generations.

And, what 'A Watershed Year' it's been for Volcan Mountain! Because of your abundant gifts, you've helped accomplish much this year--VMF's watershed literacy activities and efforts to care for and protect Volcan Mountain are flowing and growing!

The Volcan Mountain Foundation kicked off fall with our 3rd annual Sustaining Friends Fall Visioning Day on October 18th at VMF's Volcan Mountain Nature Center. It was one of the first days that it actually felt like fall, having experienced unusual extended warm weather well into September and October.

Many Friends turned out to share their insights about ways that we can continue to improve and develop the conservation strategies for engaging people with Volcan Mountain as well as protecting and caring for it. A highlight of the day was the up close look at VMF's new watershed relief map. It's not only an incredible work of art, but also a functional and important teaching tool for VMF's Education-Outreach program as well as VMF's collaboration in the San Dieguito River Watershed Explorers program.

Many thanks to Sustaining Friend Michel Malecot, owner of The French Gourmet in La Jolla, for once again providing a delicious lunch!

Becoming a Sustaining Friend of Volcan Mountain is one of the many important ways that you can help provide consistent support year after year for the vital regional resource that is the Volcan Mountain Range. If you are interested in meeting other Sustaining Friends, and learning more, please contact us (colleen@volcanmt.org or 760-765-2300) and plan on joining us for the 2016 Annual Sustaining Friends Spring Exploration Day on Sunday, May 22nd.

On behalf of the entire Volcan Mountain community, thank you for your generous support…and for over 25 years of keeping Volcan Mountain wild!
