Conserve Lake County Merges with Openlands for New Vision




 

 

 

 

 

 

Conserve Lake County is merging with Openlands, a nationally recognized land conservation leader that is a fierce defender of nature and has served Lake and its neighboring counties for 54 years. Conserve and Openlands have already collaborated on many local land protection projects.

       Conserve Lake County Executive Director Sarah Surroz states, “With your generous support and involvement, we accomplished some impressive work together in the last 22 years. Thank you for helping us preserve some extraordinary places, influence regional plans, advance game-changing legislation and empower the many people who are now taking meaningful action on behalf of the lands they love.”

       “While these are significant achievements, we can do more. It’s time to think bigger. With the state’s richest assemblage of natural resources and a coveted culture of conservation, Lake County deserves a more robust nonprofit land conservation partner as it addresses both new and long-standing threats to our quality of life and the many plant and wildlife species that take refuge here among us.”

Contributions are tax-deductible. For more information, visit ConserveLakeCounty.org and Openlands.org.
