Make a pledge for the forest | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

I’ve just been on a tour of the Trillium property that the Whidbey Camano Land Trust is attempting to preserve with their “Save the Forest Now” campaign. They need to raise $4.2 million by June 10.

This is the largest piece of privately owned property in Island County. It is larger than one square mile — a 664-acre forest.

We Whidbey Islanders have a wonderful opportunity to acquire this land, but we have to move quickly. Go to the Save the Forest Now Web site for information on the property and how to donate.

If you are unsure about making a contribution, you can make a pledge (find the form at http://wclt.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/save-the-forest-now-pledgeform.pdf).

That way, you will only pay if they raise enough money by the deadline.

Six hundred and sixty four acres.
