Making Discoveries on the Land—Thanks to You

Dear friends,

Walking the trails in our Granite Mountain Preserve, taking in the stunning views of the Highlands landscape, I am grateful for many things. Above all, I’m grateful to be working with all of you.

Together, we’ve created a community of thoughtful and passionate people who care for the land. We’ve provided meaningful opportunities for learning on the land and making exciting discoveries on the land. And, most importantly, we’re helping people experience the joy and wonder of nature, which is at the very heart of our mission.

Your ideas, enthusiasm, and roll-up-your-sleeves volunteerism make a difference every day.

With your help, we can continue to innovate, meet challenges, and complete critical projects that protect our open spaces, wildlife, and natural resources. Please consider continuing your support by making a tax-deductible donation to HHLT today. 

Finding fresh animal tracks. Identifying a songbird. Exploring a new trail. Spotting a rare flower. Learning about history. Gathering interesting scientific data. Acquiring a new skill. Meeting a new friend.

The discoveries we make in nature—that you make possible through your support of HHLT—are beautiful, joyful, important and satisfying.

Thank you for all you do to care for the land, and to support HHLT’s work on the land. I hope to see you soon—on a trail, in a meeting, during a volunteer day, or at one of our other events or gatherings. In the meantime, I hope we can count on your continued partnership and support with a donation today.

With gratitude,

Katrina Shindledecker
Executive Director

As an accredited land conservation organization committed to conserving land in perpetuity, HHLT maintains unrestricted financial reserves of approximately $7mm in board-designated funds. The first priority for these funds are enforcement and stewardship of our conserved properties, with excess used for land acquisitions. These funds are separate from general operating funds and are about seven times our most recent annual expenses, totaling about $1mm.
