Buckeye Furnace Conservation Club

After 20 plus years of helping friends and family have excellent outdoor experiences, I am asking for help in creating amazing opportunities for more children and our wounded warrior, veterans.  
We lose 22 servicemen, and women each day to suicide.  We lose more to suicide once these men and women return home, than we lose while they are fighing overseas.  This is not acceptable.
Ohio, my home state,  is currently a world leader in Deaths from overdose; the Center for Disease Control states Ohio trailed only Florida and California with 3,310 deaths attributed to overdose in 2015... of which a person is most likely to die from a PRESCRIPTION PAIN PILL overdose than ANY OTHER FORM OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH.   Not a leader in the midwest, but literally rates of Overdose death as high as ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.  We have been given an opportunity, as humans, to make our world a little better place.  
I need help from friends like you, to create a Conservation Club with like minded individuals who understand we need new programs to provide Hope and Direction for our youth and Wounded Warriors, Veterans.  They need someplace they can hear tweety birds, and frogs, instead of freeways and sirens of the City.   Where WE can take a walk and see wildlife instead of alley cats chasing rats.
This Club is over 800 acres of paradise away from the hustle and bustle, nestled at the end of a gravel road, there are over 10 different hiking paths, with over 3 miles of nature to be discovered.  Donations will help with equipment costs and upkeep of the trails, as well as helping create "viewing areas" where wildlife is commonly seen.   
A child of the 80's, 90's, and Just Say No, I have watched as our Overdose Numbers Have Skyrocketed, and current programs are NOT WORKING.  
We NEED new Programs and people to help create conservation minded habits for children and veterans who DESERVE BETTER.
I challenge you, AMERICA, to help me create a better way, reaching out together in hand to hand combat.  One on one coaching to build self-confidence, and skills needed to succeed, overcoming life's daily obstacles.   Just as St. Patrick used the Shamrock to drive all the snakes from Ireland... WE will use the Shamrock to remind us we are lucky to be here and drive away the inner demons that all to often lead us astray.

I have sold 99% of my production equipment through the years, it would be fantastic to be able to acquire some new, or new to me equipment that would enable me to begin sharing my outdoor shenanigans with the world once again.
