With great land comes great responsibility, this is why stewardship is pivotal to conserving nature’s patches.
Once we acquire land, we don’t just leave it alone. We actively take care of it. With over 60 patches of land across the island (and growing), that’s a lot of maintenance. We have a stewardship fund, an investment that we draw interest earned from on an annual basis to help pay for trees to plant, trail maintenance, surveying and other important work.
We need donations to the Mend A Patch fund. You can make a cash donation, a gift of securities, or leave a bequest in your will. Since donations to the stewardship fund are locked in an investment where only the annual earnings from the fund can be accessed to help maintain the land we hold for future generations of people and wildlife to enjoy; it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.
We are hugely grateful for any amount, which helps us to ensure continued progress with stewardship of our Natural Areas.
