Meet Nicholas Fitzmaurice!  Nicholas is 16 years old and has lived in Mazama, Washington for over 10 years.  He loves the outdoors, and in the fall he’ll be starting his Junior year at Liberty Bell High School.  For Nicholas’s Civic Action Project at Liberty Bell he chose to research Methow Headwaters Campaign and enlist the help of his peers to support the campaign through petition signatures, comment postcards and handing out stickers to help spread the word and encourage people to get involved.  Nicholas also wrote a personal letter of support to the Bureau of Land Management, Representative Newhouse, Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell and Chief Tidwell expressing his support and reasoning for why Methow Headwaters should be protected.  We feel honored to have community advocates like Nicholas Fitzmaurice standing up for the future of the place they call home – thank you!!

Please take a moment to look at Nicholas’s website he put together showcasing his project and all the hard work he did to help support protecting Methow Headwaters.
