Annual Campaign

Dear Friends,

Hawk Hill Farm, in addition to offering this beautiful Autumn vista, is representative of what your many land trust properties contribute to the region: local farms, educational workshops, hiking trails, notable trees, protected waterways, wildlife habitats, and more.

Spring is the perfect opportunity to renew our pledge to sustain these local and regional efforts. Your annual January-December membership and/or donation to a specific project is important and appreciated.

Traditionally we ask you to contribute at the start of the year, but we were studying and planning the proposed merger. If approved by members, your membership or targeted donation will carry forward into our new regional land trust.

We are so grateful for your membership, donations, and volunteer time. You enable this Land Trust to conserve and protect the open spaces and farms so cherished by our communities.

Thank you for your support,
Vic Herson on behalf of your Board of Directors
