Fern Lake Fire Behavior Unprecedented in Park Historyby RMNP Fire Management Team
Firefighters from across the country battled the Fern Lake Fire in Rocky Mountain National Park for two months before the spread of the nearly 3,500-acre blaze was temporarily halted by an early December snowstorm. The high-elevation winter fire, which eventually drew a national Type 1 Incident Management Team to Estes Park, is unprecedented in park history.

Johnson Property Acquisition Update
The acquisition of the Johnson Property, a 3.89 acre parcel on the park’s west side, remains our top fundraising priority. At this moment, more than 500 of you have donated more than $197,000 toward the $400,000 goal. Wow!
We are making progress, but we’ll need everyone’s help and contributions to be able to purchase the property for permanent protection. The seller has extended the deadline for purchase from the original October 2012 date to February of 2013. There is still time to support this project, but it is quickly running out.
Please consider making a special donation to this rare and important project to make a lasting gift to the future of Rocky Mountain National Park, one that will benefit visitors, wildlife and habitat forever. Join the Johnson Property Acquisition team today by pitching in what you can. Thank you!The nonprofit Rocky Mountain Nature Association promotes understanding of Rocky Mountain National Park and other public lands partners through the sale and publication of interpretive/ educational programs. The organization also advances stewardship through philanthropy while protecting, restoring, maintaining and preserving land and historic sites in Rocky Mountain National Park and elsewhere in the Rocky Mountain region.Sincerely,Nancy WilsonEditor, RMNA Quarterly NewsletterRocky Mountain Nature AssociationEmail: [address removed]Phone:[masked]Fax:[masked]Web: www.rmna.org
