Be a Friend of the Blue Mountains

Friends of the Blue Mountains are persons who have donated at least JA$2,000 to JCDT for the building up of its Endowment Fund which will support management of the BJCMNP. This is a one-off donation – it is not a membership fee i.e. it doesn't make you a member of the JCDT – which involves an annual membership fee. What we do ask of Friends is that they help us make other Friends e.g. invite us to speak at a meeting of their friends and colleagues; help us raise more funds e.g. have a cake sale; and get involved in our events and activities. Friends of the Blue Mountains will receive regular email updates on the BJCMNP and its management.
