We are grateful to share our conservation impacts in our Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2019 (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020). This anticipated report has taken some time to prepare, as this last year of operations has been like no other for a number of reasons. Fortunately, we have emerged stronger, more resilient and better equipped to serve our community.
As we navigated the challenges brought on by working during a global pandemic, we also saw transition in leadership—both in staff and on our Board of Directors.
We also spent the past year shoring up our operations by conducting and passing a full external audit, developing a 5-year strategic plan and renewing our national land trust accreditation status to ensure we are doing our conservation work to the highest level of standards and practices.
These specific accomplishments are not easily measured in an impact report, but they were absolutely necessary for maintaining our professional integrity and for providing the exceptional and solid foundation we now rest upon and to achieve the impacts you'll read about in this report.
