"The marsh, to him who enters it in a receptive mood, holds, besides mosquitoes and stagnation, melody, the mystery of unknown waters, and the sweetness of Nature undisturbed by man."

~ Charles William Beebe (1877-1962),
Log of the Sun, 1906 

WE REACHED OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL!

Dear friends, fans, and supporters of TLT,

I am very pleased to report that we have reached the $235,000 community fundraising goal needed to purchase conservation easements on the two properties that compose the Nonquit Pond Farmlands project.

Our sincere thanks to you for making this goal a reality!

We received many donations from long-time TLT supporters and from folks who have just recently begun supporting our mission. We received checks, processed donations made online through our website, and received gifts of appreciated securities as well. 

While much of the community support came from individuals, we are also generously supported by the town of Tiverton through its Tiverton Open Space Commission. And we received a significant financial boost in October when an anonymous donor made a $50,000 matching gift towards the effort. 

We will combine these monies raised from the community with the funds pledged by the Department of Environmental Management and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to get us to the $760,000 total needed. With purchase and sale agreements close to being signed, and money raised, we are on track to close the transaction in early 2022. 

Your support is the backbone of everything we do. We are excited for the new year and continuing our work to conserve open space and agricultural land.
