To better serve the community, our Board of Trustees has elected to merge with the Six Rivers Land Conservancy and become a local chapter of that organization. The Highland Conservancy has terminated its non-profit status by becoming a local chapter of a larger, regional land conservancy. In order that your financial support is tax deductable, all future fundraising will be done by the Six Rivers Land Conservancy. Locally we will receive funding for our programs from Six Rivers and hope that you will continue to support them financially to make the region a better place to work and play.
Some of the new activities you will see happening include:
- Land preservation workshops for private landowners held at a variety of local locations. Special tax incentives are provided to landowners to encourage land conservation. These workshops explain these programs.
- Land preservation casual discussion events at local restaurants and coffee shops. Opportunities for “one on one discussions” with a preservation specialist.
- Outdoor recreation opportunities as part of the Six Rivers Adventure League. Kayaking, bicycling and hiking showcasing beautiful rivers and park lands all over the region.
- News on what Six Rivers is working on in the region. Nature has no boundaries and what is happening around us is important to all. We will also continue to send out specific information on local events.
- How Land Conservancies work with public park authorities to facilitate the access to grant money and assistance in acquiring new public park lands.
