In 2019, the Federal Nature Fund allocated $20 M in funding to Land Trusts over 4 years.
Funding constraints affect ~50% of Land Trusts, making it a challenge to properly monitor and manage their lands. All donations help support activities directly related to making sure we can continue the work we do to protect and preserve forests, farmlands, grasslands, wetlands, gardens, and shorelines. The work we do would not be possible without the help and support of our donors.
