Columbia County is an extraordinary place, but there is no guarantee that it will remain this way.

Thanks to a generous group of donors, we have a $175,000 community match opportunity available! We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to double your gift.

In order to safeguard our county’s rich natural resources, support a thriving agricultural sector, and serve as a community conservation leader, the Columbia Land Conservancy has undertaken the Columbia County Tomorrow campaign. This ambitious effort will raise more than $7M to accelerate the pace of conservation in Columbia County, focusing on three strategic initiatives:

These strategies will make it possible for CLC to act quickly to conserve critical parcels of land, steward our 4,000-acre system of Public Conservation Areas to the highest standard, and substantially expand our education and outreach programs.

The future starts here.
Help shape it by becoming part of the Campaign today.
