Extreme Mount Washington
I’m writing to share some wonderful news: Thanks to the support of nearly 1,500 individual donors, we met our goals for both our 2013 year-end campaign AND our capital campaign to build Extreme Mount Washington!
As we close our books on December, the year-end campaign topped out at $162,428-our most successful year-end campaign ever, providing crucial funds for our weather station on Mount Washington, our instrument sites throughout the Whites, and our Weather Discovery Center in North Conway.
After several years of grant writing and fundraising, we also crossed the finish line on the capital campaign for Extreme Mount Washington. Because of you, we will soon open one of New Hampshire’s most incredible educational experiences!
On behalf of the staff and trustees of the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, THANK YOU for your generous support.
With the year-end fundraising behind us, we are busy planning exciting new research projects, preparing for the upcoming American Meteorological Society conference, executing a busy educational outreach schedule (including nearly sold-out winter trips!), and of course, fastidiously tracking all the extreme winter weather that makes Mount Washington such a remarkable place to study and share with all of you.
Watch your inbox and this blog for more updates on Extreme Mount Washington-we’ll be installing the new exhibits as soon as the road opens this spring, and hosting a ribbon cutting in June. A press release about the campaign completion may be found in our newsroom.
Thank you again for supporting our work. Because of you, we are able to continue learning about the Earth’s incredible atmosphere, sharing the science of weather and climate through far-reaching educational programs, and conducting innovative research right here in the Home of the World’s Worst Weather.
Scot Henley, Executive Director
