I want to Adopt An Acre!


Since 1996, Adopt An Acre has stood as a beacon of community-driven conservation, embodying the spirit of environmental stewardship within the watersheds of the Moira, Napanee and Salmon Rivers, and Prince Edward County.

Adopt An Acre is more than just a fundraiser; it is a testament to the power of community involvement in preserving and maintaining our conservation areas.

Participation in Adopt An Acre is a simple yet powerful process. Individuals, families and businesses can become stewards of Quinte Conservation's natural landscape by symbolically adopting an acre in exchange for a donation.

When you Adopt An Acre, your symbolic gift ensures that these vital green spaces remain a cherished asset to the community.

History of the H.R. Frink Hi-Lo Bridge

The Hi-Lo Bridge was built in the summer of 1993 to ensure that the Hi-Lo trail was fully usable all year. It spanned the Silver Maple Swamp between 2 drumlins (The “Lo” of the trail) and offered a glimpse into the ever-changing swamp community and an up close look at the towering silver maples that seem to hold it all together from relatively high water levels during the spring melt to dry ground in the summer.

During the summer of 1993, one bridge had to be replaced and a 70 m bridge was built over the swamp that lies between the 2 drumlins along the Hi-Lo trail. This valuable addition makes it possible to now walk the entire Hi-Lo trail all year 'round.  As the name of the trail indicates, it takes you through a wide range of habitats and ecosystems: succession field, field to forest ecotone, mixed forest, swamp, and river. All assistance in building this bridge was voluntary and cost was covered by the Centre's own fundraising.
