People like you allow Belwin to thrive.

Thanks to the support of our community, our woodlands are healthy, our streams are cleaner, children are exploring nature, and bison are bringing the prairie to life. If you’re already a donor, thank you! If you’re not, we encourage you to join our family of supporters by giving an amount that is meaningful to you.

Fund-a-need 2021

We opened more trail systems with more frequency last year so you could get out and hike. We’ll do the same this year, and for the foreseeable future. All told last summer, we devoted about 24 hours every week to trail mowing! We pulled this off by bringing a retired old mower back into rotation, but its days are numbered. This summer, we need your help to raise $20,000 to replace an old trail mower. If your generosity propels us beyond that to a stretch goal of $30,000, we’ll also be able to purchase an ATV for a new staff person devoted to our public spaces. Here’s to happy trails!

A force for good

We celebrate everything your donations make possible. As a donor, you’ll receive our twice yearly print publication, The Meadowlark, as well as invites to special donor appreciation events.

Those who give $500 and above are entitled to a private bison buggy ride through our restored bison prairie. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that gets you up close to the herd and celebrates everything your donations make possible.

Belwin Conservancy also accepts gifts given through bequests or wills, DAFs or family foundations, gifts of stock, land, and more.
