Fundraising campaign supporting conservation district

SCOTTVILLE — The Mason-Lake Conservation District is hosting a match campaign to raise funds throughout the month of November. An anonymous donor will match dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 total for the campaign.  The funds stay directly in the community and fund conservation projects to protect natural resources and enrich the wellbeing of our area. 

The campaign ends Nov. 29. 

Checks can be sent to Mason-Lake Conservation District, 655 N. Scottville Rd., Scottville, MI 49454 or paid online at www.mason-lakeConservation.org. Look for Endowment donation options.

The fundraising is expected to help meet the short and long-term goals of the district.  Near-term projects include stream monitoring equipment, household hazardous waste disposal, beachgrass nursery supplies, and plants and materials for agriculture demonstration areas in 2023. 

To support more long-term conservation, donations can also be made to the Mason-Lake Conservation District’s Endowment Fund, held at the Community Foundation for Mason-County.

The conservation district is grant-funded. “With something like a match campaign, every dollar doubles,” said Dani McGarry, executive director. “We can put that right back into community projects that protect our water quality, help our farms and improve healthy habitats, rather than spending time applying for and managing more grants.”
