Step into nature with Adopt an Acre

Quinte Conservation’s popular Adopt an Acre program is back and the proceeds from adoptions support the conservation area of your choice.

“In the past, donors were only able to symbolically adopt an acre of Quinte Conservation land; however, this year, individuals can direct their donations to a specific area,” said CAO Brad McNevin.

Acres are $25 each and come with an adoption certificate. People purchasing two acres will receive a Quinte Conservation Annual Parking Pass valid for one year and a bonus plush toy forest friend free of charge.

“Adopt an Acre makes a great gift for friends, family members, teachers, or co-workers,” said McNevin. “Adopt an Acre is a wonderful gift to give to someone who enjoys spending time in nature, as the annual pass grants visitors free parking and access to all of Quinte Conservation’s areas. Now that Adopt an Acre supports specific areas, we’ll have more money to invest in creating a better experience for our visitors.”

Proceeds generated from Adopt an Acre support conservation area maintenance. Over time, visitors will see improvements to trail systems and upgrades and replacement of structures like bridges, boardwalks, shelters, picnic tables, and benches.

People can adopt their acre by visiting or calling the Quinte Conservation office or by going online to

Quinte Conservation hopes to adopt out 250 acres this year. Last year the program raised just over $10,000.

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. More information about Quinte Conservation is available at
