2023 Spring Appeal

SGPA’s Spring Appeal is Underway – Can We Count On You Support?

Dear Friends,

Spring is one of my favorite seasons on the Giant. Warmer days bring new life to the park after months of winter dormancy. Birds sing from the trees, wildflowers emerge from the forest floor, and spring peepers call out from the wetlands.

During my near-daily trail runs at the Giant, I always take a moment to reflect on the natural beauty, and the incredible history of this special place.

The Sleeping Giant Park Association’s story goes back nearly 100 years, to its formation in 1924. Along the way, there have been countless people who have supported the association as members, volunteers, advocates, historians, and more.

Today, I am asking you to be part of that story.

As a supporter of the Sleeping Giant Park Association, you become part of a community that cares deeply about the Giant and its significance to our region.

With a contribution of $25 or more, you can help fund critical projects like tree planting, trail improvements, habitat restoration, and the purchase of equipment and supplies.

Your support also provides educational opportunities for park visitors of all ages, including guided hikes for families, and school outings with topics ranging from birding to geology.

SGPA and its volunteers work tirelessly to maintain and improve the trails, to engage visitors, and to advocate for the park in its times of need. We are proud to have served as the park’s stewards for nearly 100 years, and we are committed to ensuring that Sleeping Giant remains a beloved destination for generations to come.

Membership with the Sleeping Giant Park Association is about more than just supporting our work; it’s about experiencing the park in a deeper and more meaningful way.

By starting or renewing your membership, you’ll receive a variety of benefits, including:

  • A subscription to Giant News, SGPA’s seasonal newsletter with park updates, project recaps, and informative articles
  • Invitations to special events, including SGPA’s annual meeting and holiday party
  • The ability to participate in the Giant Master program

Your contribution also ensures that Sleeping Giant State Park remains a vibrant and well-loved part of our community.

By supporting the Sleeping Giant Park Association, you demonstrate your commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the Giant, and ensuring that future generations have the opportunity to experience it as we do today.

I hope you’ll consider joining or renewing your support for SGPA, today, with a gift of $25 or more. Your support is critical to our mission, and we are grateful for every dollar, every hour, and every vote of confidence in our work.

Thank you, and I hope to see you on the trails!
