Building Permanence

In 2004 TLT opened the doors of the Field Station to house TLT's Shorebird Monitor/ Naturalist. Landowners and conservation partners joined TLT for a potluck celebration of the lasting endorsement for conservation stewardship and education. Seven additional researchers stayed at the Field Station during the season while they were conducting multi-day research and stewardship projects. Researchers are charged a nominal rental fee that helps to offset operating costs of the Field Station.

The AguaFund, Inc. awarded TLT a generous $10,000 grant for operating expenses. Additionally, their $5,000 capacity building grant, and that of another very generous donor, challenged TLT to encourage new members to join and current members to increase their level of giving. Many rose to the challenage, and TLT welcomed 13 new members, 16 people with lapsed membership who rejoined, and 14 donors who increased their level of contribution.

We wholeheartedly thank all donors for their support of Tuckernuck conservation and assure them that their generosity is vital to our continued efforts.
