Beargrass Thunder have big plans for 2020. Some of our plans and goals include expanding our work with alleys around town, organizing cleanups of Beargrass Creek, doing seed-swaps and nature hikes, tree plantings, and of course, increasing the quality and consistency of the content we provide for you.

Something we are a little nervous about is launching a Patreon. If you're out of the loop, Patreon is a platform for creators to connect with fans, provide exclusive content and rewards, and provide a form of consistent income. Beargrass Thunder will be trying it out during the new year. We think it could help us connect more with our fanbase, and also help cover things like website fees, Adobe software we use to create content, and even allow us to organize local events. A few bucks a month can really go a long way, and increase the quality and amount of content we can put out. If you have a few dollars to spare, check out our page and consider becoming one of our patrons!

If you haven't already, you can also help us out by liking our Facebook page, subscribing to our YouTube channel, and joining our website's mailing list. We're nearing lots of important milestones; just clicking a couple buttons can give us that little boost we need.

With that out of the way, we at Beargrass Thunder wish you Happy Holidays, and a prosperous New Year! Stay tuned for interesting and engaging content as well as some exciting announcements in the near future! Peace out, girlscouts.
