Central Coast Land Conservancy Receives Two Grants! 

The Conservancy is proud to announce that we have received two grants! One of the grants received, for $25,000, was from funds contributed by John Gray (recently deceased) to the YARG Foundation for land conservancy work.  This program, called Accelerating Conservation Excellence (ACE) is managed by the Land Trust Alliance of the Northwest.  This was the second year the Conservancy received this grant.  
This grant offers wonderful support for the Conservancy. It will help to support our organizational work, conservation property prioritization, building a donor and volunteer base, and working on property restoration and stewardship. With this support we’ll be able to do more and better work, and we’ll be working to be able to hire our first staff person.
The Yarg Foundation grant comes with a 25% match requirement. Help with the match has already been received through a generous grant from U.S. Bancorp for $3000. Newport’s U.S. Bank branch manager Michael Smith, presented a check to CCLC board members.  He has been aware of land conservancy work for awhile.   â€œWe recognize the importance of land conservation for our area’s ecological and economic health; it’s a matter of quality of life,” he says, “it’s of importance to residents and tourists alike.  We’re always happy to support efforts of residents and groups to pursue their dreams, whatever they are, whether it be building a home, a business or passing on their properties to the future.”

Conservation Easement Update

The Conservancy is anticipating that by late spring we'll be able to finish the steps to secure a conservation easement on a piece of scenic oceanfront land north of Newport, Oregon.
This property will allow the existing house and garden to remain, but preclude further any development. With work like this we
 can preserve scenic views and property on Oregon's beautiful coast line.
