Annual Campaign

Dear Friends,

When I greet neighbors crossing Stout Family Fields in the morning sun, I’m so grateful the Stouts helped save it for generations to enjoy. Working together to care for the land like this, our Land Trust creates a local conservation community that keeps us rooted in what matters most. 

The new year provides an opportunity to renew our pledge to sustain this community. Your annual January-December or lifetime membership helps conserve farmland, protect our environment, and connect people with nature. Or donate or volunteer for your favorite project. However you choose, we’re humbled by your enthusiasm for the Land Trust’s mission and grateful we’re in this together.

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

My mother wanted her land to remain as it was. Every day in all seasons, 20 or more people walk the path through the fields to reach Penwood Park. It’s a very special place in our community. - John Stout
