Goal

Together we can ensure that land in our community is permanently protected for the good of all living beings.


Protecting and caring for local land can keep us fed, support our mental and physical health, maintain water quality, support habitat and stabilize our climate.


In the midst of two global crises, the pandemic, and climate change, we are calling on our community to band together and protect the land that keeps us fed, stabilizes our climate through capturing carbon, cycling water and maintaining diverse ecosystems. Forested land, agricultural land, flood lands, grasslands, and wetlands are the foundation for our survival, and as we have seen during COVID-19, we also depend on recreational trails, parks and public spaces for our quality of life; to get exercise, lift our spirits and commune with nature. 


The Kingston Land Trust has set aside $20,000 for this effort this year- can we count on you to match it?
