The Land Conservancy has no paid staff. It is run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to preserving vital habitat for species survival.
Every penny the Land Conservancy receives from members, donors, and funders is used for land acquisition and stewardship. Annual operating and property stewardship costs are $8,000.
We set aside money in a land acquisition fund so that we are ready to cover acquisition costs, such as appraisals, when a donor offers a property to us or when we buy a property that is important to preserve in its natural state. We have a land acquisition policy and a Natural Heritage Plan which identifies priority areas for protection.
To cover the ongoing costs of property ownership and conservation easement management, we maintain a stewardship account to generate sufficient annual income to cover property taxes, property insurance, and other expenses related to property responsibilities. We also have money set aside in the Natural Areas Protection Fund which is endowed with the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area.
