A rising tide lifts all boats. At Weantinoge, we really believe in this statement, especially when it comes to the land conservation community.
For the past year, Weantinoge has worked with partner land trusts to provide free services supporting high-quality land stewardship, expanded volunteer programs, and improved access to public nature preserves. Your support helps to make this important, collaborative work possible.
These services have included:
- Providing board members and volunteers with the "whats, whens, whys, and hows" of land trust stewardship.
- Digitizing land trust maps to allow for more efficient and accurate property inspections.
- Training land trusts on the latest mapping and GPS technology and purchasing GPS units for their use.
- Drafting a stewardship manual providing clear guidance on best management practices for inspecting land trust property.
- Securing a $15,000 grant from the Iroquois Community Grant Program to provide public access to a preserve owned by a partnering land trust.
