Quinte Conservation Exceeded Adopt an Acre Goal for 2015

Quinte Conservation successfully adopted out 219 acres in 2015 – raising over $4,000 to benefit four local Conservation Areas. 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.

She adds, “The money raised with Adopt An Acre 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.”

Anyone can participate in Adopt An Acre throughout the year by donating online.
