STEWARDSHIP FUNDING CAMPAIGN!

 

The Haliburton Highlands Land Trust continues our campaign to raise funds for our Stewardship Fund.  Please CLICK HERE to find out more and make your donation today!

Help protect the Land You Love for Future Generations!

We presently provide stewardship to five beautiful properties of approximately 1200 acres and provide stewardship oversight of another 100 acres under a Conservation Easement Agreement. Although HHLT properties have been donated, there were and continue to be, significant costs associated with the securing and maintaining of these ecologically rich and diverse properties. Such costs include administrative, legal, consulting and accounting costs, providing and maintaining public access and education programs and maintaining habitat for all Species at Risk.
