Seek the Peak 2021

Margaret Jividen

Year Five!


I am so excited to be doing STP for my fifth year! MWO has such a special place in my heart, and I would love for you to donate to support my hike this year. 

In 2017, I had the internship of a lifetime with Mount Washington Observatory. I was able to live on the 6,288 foot summit, forecast the wild winds of the rockpile, give tours to hundreds of patrons, and to fall deeply in love with the people and places in the Whites. This amazing non-profit has been providing critical forecasts for the people and business in the White Mountains for decades. I was able to first hand see the impacts of these forecasts, but also the valuable education that MWO provides virtually to classrooms around the country. Please join me in supporting this legendary observatory in their 20th year of the Seek the Peak hikeathon. 

Generic spiel below:

In July of 2021 I'll be climbing 6,288-foot Mount Washington, N.H. as a participant in 21st annual Seek the Peak, in support of the legendary non-profit Mount Washington Observatory. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support my hike.  

Due to the generosity of supporters the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory has been observing and reporting on Mount Washington’s infamous conditions for nearly 90 years from their mountaintop weather station, maintaining one of North America's longest continuous climate records. The data they collect is utilized in forecasting models, weather reports, landmark climate research and a variety of educational outreach. 

Please join me in supporting this legendary institution by making a donation towards my outdoor adventure. All gifts are fully tax-deductible, and will help Mount Washington Observatory continue their important work in the Home of the World’s Worst Weather.
