On July 10th, a historic and catastrophic thousand-year-flood swept through Vermont. The road to Sage Mountain Botanical Sanctuary turned into a raging river, stripping the road all the way down to the bedrock.
For 35 years, this Mountain has been a sanctuary to plants, animals, and people. For five years, our 501c3 nonprofit has continued Rosemary Gladstar's legacy of conservation, education and healing, through wildlife advocacy, botanical research, on site programs and retreats, and afterschool and summer outdoor education for the area's low-income and at-risk youth.
The flood has cut off Sage Mountain's access to the outside world, and forced the cancellation of all of our 2023 revenue-generating programs - revenue which we rely on generating each summer to fuel our entire year of expenses.
Your tax-deductible donation will help sustain the Sanctuary through this long-term disruption. Your contribution not only provides a source of revenue to maintain the Mountain during this time of recovery, but also ensures that we can continue to our most vital programs that support the youth in our region - especially during this time of great community need - by funding the continuation of youth programming in spite of the interruption to our road access.
Each donation - large and small - sustains the work of the Mountain during this time of recovery and rebuilding. Thank you for your generosity!
