Support Conservation in Our Community!

As 2020 comes to a close, many of us are becoming more aware—and more appreciative—of the simple pleasures in our lives that remain constant, providing enjoyment and peace of mind-- like nature. This year more than any other, we are grateful for the abundance of natural areas for outdoor recreation we have available, right at our doorstep.

Chikaming Open Lands remains committed to preserving our natural open spaces, providing a safe place for everyone in our community to take advantage of the restorative qualities of the outdoors.

Our supporters make it possible for us to provide those natural open spaces for our community to enjoy and to connect with the natural world. With your partnership, we are able to provide an essential benefit—safe places to connect with nature—that will improve the lives of those in our community. That’s why your support is so meaningful, perhaps now more than ever. 

So if you haven't already, please consider making a year-end gift to Chikaming Open Lands today.

Together, we can ensure that these cherished natural areas remain available for future generations to enjoy just as we have during this tumultuous year.

P.S.: if you make your gift before 2020 ends, you can take up to a $300 charitable tax deduction--even if you don't itemize!
