Land Protection

Munves pondsmSince our incorporation, our Property Inventory (acquired though purchase, lease, bequest and donation) has grown to over 3702.82 acres of forest, marsh, sand dune, offshore island, river frontage and pond. We have helped private landowners voluntarily protect over 2,000 acres of their own lands under legal agreement, and have worked with the Government of Prince Edward Island to legally protect more than 12,000 acres of provincially-owned land.

Through the federal EcoGift program we continue to assist landowners protect or convey their land and avoid being penalized with capital gains tax.

Land stewardship continues forever once land is acquired, so management plans are drafted, updated and reviewed regularly.  Some lands need a great deal of management to restore them to a more natural state, others need virtually no work.
