Cottonwood Lake Preservation Society Celebration!

October 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Four years in the making and we have finally done it. We have saved Cottonwood Lake. With your incredible support, we successfully raised just under $650,000 which supported the purchase of 49 hectares of mature forest slated to be logged. Over 1,000 different individual donors, from families to businesses, locals, non-locals, and everyone in between, helped us reach our goal of protecting Cottonwood Lake so it can remain wild.

To celebrate the closing of the Save Cottonwood campaign, and to recognize the many of you who donated your time, your creativity, your energy, and your money to Save Cottonwood, we’re throwing a shaker.

Join us on Saturday October 8th, 2022, at Cottonwood Lake between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. as we unveil our new donor kiosk, and officially celebrate the closure of this amazing story of a small community rising to a very big challenge. Check our website ( or contact us for a bus schedule or to sign up for our rideshare as we would love to welcome you and together, celebrate this significant milestone.
