Quinte Conservation’s Adopt an Acre fundraiser is here again! Starting November 15th through to December 13th, 2021, folks will be able to symbolically adopt an acre in honour of a loved one and help preserve Quinte Conservation’s protected areas. A perfect way to give the gift of nature this holiday season!

Communication’s Specialist, Kirsten Geisler, says “The success of last year’s Adopt an Acre campaign proved how valuable our green spaces really are for our mental and physical health, as well as the important role we play at Quinte Conservation to protect and maintain these cherished areas.”

With the adoption of an acre for $30.00, you’ll receive an adoption certification with the name you designate and a tax receipt. If you adopt two acres for $60.00, you’ll receive an adoption certificate and a plush toy animal friend. Donations above the cost of acres will receive a tax receipt for the remaining amount. Donate by December 13th and you’ll be able to give the gift of nature this holiday season.

Geisler adds, “Donating to Adopt an Acre offers a unique way to gift your loved ones a small slice of nature through the continued care and protection of their favourite green spaces.”

All proceeds from the Adopt an Acre campaign go toward the continued preservation and maintenance of Quinte Conservation’s green spaces. Over time, guests to these outdoor spaces will notice upgrades and improvements to trails and structures like bridges, boardwalks, shelters, picnic tables, and benches.

Acres are available for adoption at or by calling 613-968-3434. Orders must be placed by December 13, 2021, for delivery in time for the holidays. Curbside pick-up is not available this year.

Quinte Conservation hopes to adopt out 200 acres this year. Last year the program raised just over $13,000 and helped to complete projects at Little Bluff, Vanderwater, and many of our other conservation areas.
