Help the Friends raise funds to purchase emergency rescue equipment for Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. A donation will help the Porkies staff provide year-round emergency rescue services in both the park and surrounding areas. The Friends goal is $27,000 to purchase a Polaris 900XP side by side with removable snow tracks, replace the 20-year-old wheeled litter and purchase a rescue tent with a heater.
