Campaign: 500 hectares of protected land by the end of 2020
The Land Conservancy KFLA has made great strides increasing conserved lands in our region. Since it began in 2004, the Land Conservancy has protected 10 properties totaling 308 hectares of land conserved for nature, forever. Our goal, as set out in our 2015–2020 strategic plan, is to reach a total of 500 hectares by the end of 2020. We are close to reaching this goal. You can help!
Thank you to everyone who has made a donation including over 80 individuals, the Kingston Field Naturalists, and the Gosling Foundation.

Nature Reserve – Name TBD
Acquired May 15, 2020, our newest property is 3.4 hectares of steep slope on a small lake within the Frontenac Biosphere Reserve. The 400-meter shoreline is rocky with a sharp drop off from the granite cliffs to deep clean water. The property will be forming part of a bridge between two large protected areas: Queen’s University Biological Station and Frontenac Provincial Park. We share the donors’ intention to conserve the natural features of the property and to protect it from future development. We are pleased to be guardians of this gem in the Canadian Shield.
