It’s official – we’re turning 40! It’s hard to believe we’ve been at it that long – four decades of protecting open spaces, farms and parkland. Together we’ve accomplished a lot and we really couldn’t have done it without you.

When you consider everything we’ve achieved, it’s tempting to think that our work is nearly finished. But we have more land to protect, more to connect and more for us all to explore and enjoy. Watch this video to get excited about the road ahead:




And, then take a tour of our 40th anniversary website to look back at our greatest milestones protecting and creating this amazing place we call home. You’ll see that there’s a lot to celebrate and we can’t wait to get started. We hope you will join us at these special anniversary events or online by participating in our #ForeverOurBackyard social media campaign.

We’re excited for what the future holds and what we will accomplish together in our next 40 years. Thanks for everything you do to support our work. Onward!
