[BRYONET] Burns Bog - your opinion

Dear Bryonetters,
I have just forwarded to you a message asking for a contribution to
support Burns Bog. I don't normally forward solicitations, but this one
is bryological. This is your list. Should I forward such requests that
relate to bryophytes, even if they do not come from a member of the list?

  1. Thank you Janice for posting our request for funding.

    We are a small group but at the same time the largest in British Columbia educating and building awareness about the importance of peatlands and their role in the environment.

    We do not receive funding from the Corporation of Delta, Metro Vancouver or the United Way.

    We rely entirely on individual donations, sponsorships and grants to fund our educational programs and public awareness campaigns.

    Right now we are fighting the South Fraser Perimeter Road that is going through some of British Columbia's best farmland, bogland and destroying the escarpment of the Fraser River in North Delta. This road goes within a kilometre of 19 public and private schools.

    That you again.
