The 1786 Society

When you donate $500 or more, you become a member of The 1786 Society.

Columbia County was founded in 1786. Though much has changed since then, the county remains a scenic rural area with extensive natural resources, abundant wildlife, and a thriving agricultural economy. The Columbia Land Conservancy is working hard in many ways to ensure that these qualities will last long into the future.

As a member of The 1786 Society, you receive special benefits for your leadership giving:

Invitations to exclusive events such as bird walks and behind-the-scenes farm tours

Invitations to our annual Pancake Breakfast and Year End Major Donor Reception

Recognition in the CLC Annual Report and CLC Newsletter

Subscription to the CLC newsletter and monthly email updates
