2015

Foothills Conservancy celebrated it’s 20th anniversary and the protection of more than 49,000 acres across it’s service area. Today, that number is constantly growing because of the support of conservancy donors, the communities the conservancy serves, and numerous public and private partners. This was also the year that the conservancy acquired its fourth preserve, South Mountains Headwaters Preserve.
