Quinte Conservation's popular Adopt an Acre program will help three local Conservation Areas this year. Quinte Conservation's Communications Manager Jennifer May-Anderson says, "Money raised this year will go towards naturalization and invasive species control at Macaulay Mountain, Sidney and Kingsford Conservation Areas."

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 calling or visiting the Quinte Conservation office or online."

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 250 acres this year. Last year the program raised close to $5,000.

Sidney Conservation Area is located south of Stirling. Kingsford Conservation Area is found beside the Salmon River, 2 km west of Kingsford on Blessington Road. Macaulay Mountain Conservation Area, featuring the popular Birdhouse City, is located on the eastern outskirts of Picton.

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. It provides cost-effective environmental expertise and leadership. Quinte Conservation's main goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem where people and nature live in harmony.
