Adopt An Acre to Support Accesssible Trail

Adopt An Acre

Quinte Conservation’s popular Adopt an Acre program will help support the new accessible trail this year. Communications Manager Jennifer May-Anderson says, “Money raised this year will go towards improvements at the new accessible trail in Belleville. In the spring we will be planting scent and butterfly gardens and installing braille signs.”

May-Anderson adds, “Each year we offer local residents the opportunity to symbolically ‘adopt’ an acre of conservation land to help protect and preserve local green spaces. For $20 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 or going online to www.quinteconservation.ca.”

This year, if people adopt two or more acres, they will receive a plush toy chipmunk as a thank you for the donation.

Quinte Conservation hopes to adopt out 150 acres this year. Last year the program raised close to $3,000.

The accessible trail, called the Parrott Trail at Potter’s Creek is located across from the Quinte Conservation office at 2061 Old Highway 2.
