219 acres adopted out

adopt an acre

Quinte Conservation Ddopted out 219 acres in 2015 – raising more than $4,000 to benefit four local conservation areas.

The environmental organization encourages people to symbolically “adopt” an acre of conservation land for $20 as a gift or for themselves. The money raised will help us to put up interpretive signage at Massassauga Point, Potter’s Creek, Vanderwater and Depot Lakes conservation areas.

“We want to share important information about the natural heritage of these valuable local green and wilderness spaces including trail maps and information about invasive species,” said Jennifer May Anderson, communications manager.

“We are thrilled with the community’s generous response to the needs of our public green spaces,” said Anderson. “We had such tremendous support in this effort from our staff, board members and all of the people who adopted acres. We are very grateful to all those who donated so generously to the program.”

Anyone can participate in Adopt An Acre throughout the year by visiting the Quinte Conservation website, and clicking on the “donate” link.

Quinte Conservation is a community-based environmental protection agency. It serves 18 municipalities in the watersheds of the Moira, Napanee and Salmon Rivers and Prince Edward County.
