Annual Report


Dear Friends, We are pleased to report that 2010 was another year of growth and accomplishment for your Land Conservancy. We expanded our membership base, realized our financial goals and, most importantly, protected additional special lands in the Rogue Basin. In partnership with the City of Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Woodlands Association, we successfully negotiated a conservation easement on another park within the City: The Grove, seven acres of unique habitat with public trails for hiking. This addition brings the total area of conserved land comprising the Jacksonville Woodlands to 130 acres, all protected by conservation easements. This is a premier regional asset which annually attracts more than 2,000 visitors. Earlier in the year, we protected twenty acres of prime farmland and riparian habitat along Bear Creek. Historic Eagle Mill Farm, which borders the Bear Creek Greenway, includes a producing vineyard and brings over 2,000 students to the property each year to learn about how food is grown, harvested and prepared through the Rogue Valley Farm to School Program. Partnering with us in this project were Cycle Oregon, Friends of Jackson County and numerous individuals committed to keeping this property intact for generations to come. We have a number of significant projects currently in process. With each day we gain confidence that the natural beauty and rural character which we value will be here for future generations, because of the support we receive from you, our members and community partners. Thanks for making it possible.

For the Land,
