Happy Thanksgiving! At the National Wildlife Federation’s Northeast office, we’re grateful every day to have supporters like you who enable us to do so much important work for wildlife, habitat, communities, and children. In a rapidly changing world, our work is more important than ever. I hope you enjoy these stories and, if you can, I hope you’ll support our work with an end-of-year gift!
Although the precious wildlife described in this newsletter can’t thank you, I can—THANK YOU!
