To date, nearly 680 supporters have donated over $800,000. The 1 year Pilot hill sale/purchase agreement was granted a 6 month extension. The Wyoming Community Foundation joined as one of the many project partners ensuring all donations qualify as a charitable contribution for tax purposes.
The proposal for a State Lands Exchange to help with the purchase is looking bright! You will soon see a link on the Pilot Hill website and Facebook page to the detailed report of the proposal and ways to provide comments.
As they head into 2019, the results of the Community Survey, State Archaeologist Inventory, sensitive aquifer recharge areas and wildlife habitat data will inform the Land Management Committee’s work to plan access sites, trail systems and park management. Pledges and donations will be invested in the purchase, initial infrastructure and park management, and leveraged to secure additional donations, grants and investments.
Volunteers will be invited to “lend a hand” on Pilot Hill and on planning a community celebration in the coming year!
