Adopt-an-Acre program will help build water monitoring system

Quinte Conservation’s popular Adopt an Acre program is back and will help support a new water monitoring and research facility at Quinte Conservation.

“The money raised with Adopt an Acre will help us build a water monitoring and research facility that will enable staff to continue with water quality monitoring programs on the Bay of Quinte and other watercourses throughout our watershed,” said Terry Murphy, Quinte Conservation General Manager.

“There have been so many changes over the past few years because of climate change that it is now necessary to have a facility like this at our
office in order to ensure a healthy environment for our children and grandchildren.”

For $25 donors receive a tax receipt and an adoption certificate in the name of a loved one, friend, teacher or anyone who is interested in supporting a local environmental cause.

People can adopt their acre by visiting or calling the Quinte Conservation office (613) 968-3434 ext. 123 OR (613) 354-3312 ext. 123 or going online to

When people adopt two or more acres, they have the choice to receive a plush toy chipmunk, fox, or (new this year) cardinal as a thank you for the donation.

Quinte Conservation hopes to adopt out 250 acres this year. Last year the program raised just over $6,000 and helped to pay for signage at local conservation areas, habitat enhancement projects and invasive species removal.

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.

Quinte Conservation’s main goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem where people and nature live in harmony. More information about Quinte Conservation is available at
