Open Space Fund
Donate
Open Space Preservation through Land Acquisition and regulatory advocacy.

This strategy focuses on the acquisition of undeveloped or developed land to lessen or prevent the impacts of over development on our community’s assets. In general, the strategy requires the following steps: (1) identification or mapping of available open space, (2) prioritization of parcels, and (3) acquisition of property or advocating for use restrictions at the municipal and state levels.

Your contribution to this fund will help achieve these goals. Acquisition of land can take a number of forms. The McKaig Nature Center may purchase land from willing sellers outright, receive a donation of private land, or negotiate deed restrictions on the use of public or private lands.

Ben frequently visited the park with his son to instill an appreciation about learning nature. Ben passed far too young.
Donations to this fund are used for education programs for children.
Progress: $ 750.00 received toward our goal of $ 4,350.00
