Valley Guardians is a group of committed donors who donate $1,000 or more annually. This group of inspiring supporters believes it is important to invest in defending the few remaining natural areas in our city for our wildlife, our residents, our health, and the next generation.
This level of membership is incredibly impactful as MCC continues to grow our protection impact and management responsibilities. Securing recurring annual contributions of $1,000+ will be critical to assess our capacity for continued growth. MCC is currently an all-volunteer organization. However, we now own and steward 4 properties comprising over 53 acres and will soon manage two public nature parks/preserves. We need to secure reliable funding to ensure the on-going care and management of our public spaces, become more agile when responding to future protection opportunities, and build capacity for a dedicated staff person.
Valley Guardian benefits include:
Annual MCC Valley Guardian celebration.
Exclusive guided tours to experience MCC's protection and restoration work at properties not open to the public.
Special acknowledgement on Mud Creek Conservancy's webpage and E-newsletter.
