Thank you, Griffin area residents! We have met our fundraising goal for five years in a row. In May, 2014, the GNA and Capitol Land Trust agreed to continue the Steamboat Conservation Partnership for another five years. We couldn't have done this without your support and we look forward to another five years of habitat preservation right here in our own backyards.
