Land Acquisition Fund Donations
The Land Acquisition Fund first began with a donation from First National Bank. The donation is being utilized to initiate a land acquisition campaign that focuses on the acquisition of key properties within the Conservancy's service area. Within the organization's service area, LLC determines which properties should be protected based on their natural resource value, whether they are already linked to protected lands, and if they are threatened by development or change of ownership.
