    Vision 20/20 Campaign

    In the year 2020, the Thames Talbot Land Trust will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Having earned the respect and confidence of donors, granting agencies and landowners alike since its inception in 2000, TTLT has established itself as one of Southwestern Ontario’s “go to” conservation organizations. In light of its growing reputation TTLT has been offered an unprecedented number of new conservation opportunities that have the potential to expand our existing conservation land holdings by as much as 30 percent. In response, the Trust is ready to take its land securement activities to the next level through an initiative branded Vision 20/20. The campaign’s goal is to secure a minimum of twenty (20) properties by the end of the 2020 calendar year through a combination of donated and purchased properties.

    Unlike previous campaigns, each focused on a single property, this initiative is intended to generate funds for securement and management of seven new properties, four of which are donations. The new lands will add 555 acres to the Thames Talbot Land Trust. These high-value conservation properties are located across the TTLT geographic area of interest, in the increasingly imperiled Carolinian region of Southwestern Ontario. This region contains 25% of all of the species at risk within our Canadian borders and yet only 2.5% of the land is held as protected natural spaces.

    We are asking for your support for this campaign by any way which you can provide it. We are seeking help from people to spread the word of what the Thames Talbot Land Trust is and what we are doing. We also need financial help, donations may be made at the bottom of this webpage. 

    Attached is a copy of the Vision 20/20 Campaign booklet. This booklet highlights some background information of our organization and the properties which we seek to acquire for long term protection of valuable natural heritage features. 

    Thank you for your support in our mission to protect our natural environment.
