How do you measure a year?

You are here

We have plenty of statistics about the work we did together in 2018. We can tell you how many acres you helped us protect (68,996), or how much public funding we generated for parks and conservation at the polls ($4.8 billion), or how many new and improved parks we opened in cities across the country (25).

We think these numbers are pretty impressive! But we know they're only part of the story. They don’t capture the feeling of forever protecting a place that matters to your community, or working together with your neighbors to create a close-to-home park where people can forge a connection with nature, and each other. 

We couldn't do any of this without people like you. So we hope you can take a moment to revisit some of our proudest accomplishments in 2018—and feel the love from the places and people you helped by supporting The Trust for Public Land!

As we look ahead to a busy 2019, we need your support more than ever. And there’s no better time to give: our Year-End Matching Gift Challenge has been extended through December 31. We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity—and double your impact today.

So impressive and such a diverse collection of needed and appreciated projects for people and lands. I appreciate your taking the time and effort to put this wonderful presentation together. THANKS

I had no idea that your organization was doing so much to encourage hunting. I live on the edge of the Morro Bay Estuary, where every winter we must listen to the loud booms of hunters' guns killing the ducks and geese that we love. It would be hard to find a single person living nearby that doesn't want the hunting stopped, but the Fish and Wildlife people tell us that the fees paid by the hunters are needed for their budget, especially because overall, the number of hunters is decreasing in the US. It seems that TPL is influenced by hunting interests, and encouraging this horrible, primitive practice. Last week, one of my neighbors found a duck in front of her home that had been shot but not killed by a hunter, left to a slow death. I am very disappointed in TPL and will never contribute.

I greatly appreciate the diversity of the work being done from big land protection projects in rural parts of the country which protects the recreation opportunities in these communities, to the urban parks in densely populated parts of the country. Thanks for all you do to protect resources for people, all people.
