April 26th, 2019: Thank you. Your support has been overwhelming, and the kind words that accompanied many donations are without a doubt going to keep us motivated for the long haul! The university will take some days or weeks to tally up total donations and matches, but we’ve been told that we have surpassed our goal of raising CAD$40,000 in donations (to be matched) by a wide margin. It looks like we’re going to finish this field season with something to spare for 2020! We’ll share updates as final numbers become available to us.
Giveaway: All donations made since April 1st are eligible for the Giveaway (https://wildernessprints.blog/2019/04/15/2019-wolverine-fundraiser-with-great-prizes-to-be-won/).
