A month to go! Latest news on the Walker Swamp land addition fundraiser

Time is flying by, and it has now been four weeks since we shared the exciting news about the potential to expand NGT’s Walker Swamp Restoration Reserve. But before we get to the numbers, let’s pause for a moment to take in the view!

The image below was taken just a few days ago, giving you a fresh perspective over the area we are looking to add to our existing reserve…

At last count, we’ve received 66 donations, combining to make a total of $88,670.

After matching, this means we have raised $177,340 for the land purchase, and are now over a third of the way towards our $500,000 target!
