It’s Our Nature
Consider a place you love: a lake, a path, a park, a view. A gift to Westchester Land Trust helps us protect the wild and natural places that are part of our cherished memories and daily lives.
My conservation story started when my husband, Bill, and I took weekend walks through the woods near our home and we came upon a hydrant deep in the woods. A large housing development was coming. It was a signal of change to come. These woods would soon become roads. I was devastated. We had come to love this path that seemed endless, wild and rich with its own ecology. This experience led me to WLT, because the difference we make is local.
Today Bill and I live on a property that is protected forever. This land fuels our passion for conservation and desire to be stewards for future generations. WLT’s land stewardship staff has helped us care for this land, and we know it will make a difference. WLT makes its resources and expertise available to the community, because every homeowner can contribute to the local environment through the care and use of their land.
In honor of our 25th year, I am pleased to announce that any new gifts or increases in an already generous donation will be matched against a $25,000 challenge gift from a WLT board member – help us reach our goal!
There are many good reasons for preserving land. It’s critical that we all find a way to participate in land protection. Together, with your support today, we can create a natural environment that is beloved for its value to our personal lives, to our health and to our future.
