Ascending into 2014
Connecting Mountains, Water, and People
Dear AAP Friends & family,
We are reaching out to you because we’ve worked with, talked about, or expressed interest in crowd-sourced alpine observations. 2013 has been a momentous year for Alpine of the Americas Project. This year we have:
~ Become an official non-profit organization
~Drawn national news attention to the effects of climate change on vital local resources
~Built national and international partnerships to repeat over 100 photographs for scientific research
~Developed a catalog of over 400 historic photos in 5 countries for individuals to repeat and take home their personal alpine observations
You are part of a trusted community we depend on to succeed. We believe in the value of sharing these observations to continue communicating how mountains provide vital resources for people.
Tell your friends! We are in the early steps of seeking support for this work and every connection and donation makes a difference. Please send this email along to other people who you think might be interested in participating or supporting this project!
Please support us by making a donation today! Whether it is $25, $100, or $1000 your tax-deductible donation to Alpine of the Americas makes a real difference for finding historic photos and locations, leveraging the capacity of our citizen-scientist volunteers, and communicating dramatic environmental changes to the public though repeating historic photos!
Thank you for your generosity and support!
