To Our Beloved Supporters,
For the last few weeks we’ve been celebrating Thankuary at Big Sur Land Trust. Though we are grateful all year for our donors, partners, funders, sponsors and volunteers, we’ve set aside this time to send extra doses of appreciation to all of you. And now, we have some special gifts for you!
We hope these screensavers will remind you of the beautiful places you care for, and how your generosity makes it possible for youth to connect and find their wonder in nature.
We are excited to share this amazing video of the Monterey Symphony’s 2016 performance of John Wineglass’ Big Sur: The Night Sun. We are so grateful for our partnership with John and with the Symphony! We’re looking forward to hosting another residency for John at Glen Deven Ranch as he works on a Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, which the Symphony will premiere in 2022 with Edwin Huizinga. It’s sure to be another moving piece inspired by the lands you love!
Speaking of the lands you love…this year marks the 20th anniversary of Dr. Seeley and Virginia Mudd’s bequest of Glen Deven Ranch to Big Sur Land Trust! And we’re continuing to celebrate three decades of conservation for Mitteldorf Preserve thanks to the generous gift of Harriet and Arthur Mitteldorf. Though we have not been able to gather in these magical spaces, you are welcome to reserve a self-guided hike at either location. And we’re working hard on other creative ways to celebrate these milestones while following current safety guidelines!
You’ll also have a chance to run or hike at Glen Deven or Mitteldorf during our modified 2021 Race for Open Space from April 4th through April 25th. Not in the area? Not to worry – you can choose your favorite trail and support our mission wherever you live!
No matter where you are, we want you to know how much you mean to us!
With heartfelt gratitude,
Your fans at Big Sur Land Trust
