Record-setting year for Adopt an Acre

Quinte-Conservation-70thQuinte Conservation successfully adopted out 318 acres in 2016 – raising more than $6,000 to benefit local Conservation Areas.

The 2016 goal was $4,500 Communications Manager Jennifer May-Anderson says.

“We are thrilled with the community’s generous response to the needs of our public green spaces. 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.”

The environmental organization encourages people to symbolically “adopt” an acre of conservation land for $20 as a gift or for themselves. The money raised goes toward improving local Conservation Areas.

“The money raised with Adopt An Acre will help us to put up interpretive signage at local 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.”

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