Thank you Jacoby Creek Preservation Donors! 

Your donations are being held in a segregated fund to be used only for the Jacoby Creek project. We will be working on details and costs with the winning bidders over the next couple of weeks. We will continue to update you as to the status of the fund.

From the desk of Krista Magaw, Executive Director of Tecumseh Land Trust:
Congratulations to Community Solutions and other successful bidders! The article found athttp://ysnews.com/news/2017/03/community-solutions-buys-half-of-arnovitz-farm by Audrey Hackett gives a good overview of the conclusion to the auction -- friendly buyers did very well and are dedicated to restoring and preserving Jacoby Creek!!


Thanks to the village and all of you who have donated toward Jacoby Creek preservation. Now we're hammering out the details with the buyers and planning how to protect the rest of Jacoby Creek. Look for updates about the next steps coming soon!  There is still much work to be done but we are grateful for the community support shown to this project.

Good news for Jacoby Creek! Community Solutions has purchased tracts 6 and 8, totaling about 128 acres, of the 267-acre Arnovitz farm. Tract 8 has been a priority for TLT, because the land contains two tributaries of Jacoby Creek.

Do you have a farm that you want to stay a farm forever? Or have you longed to invest in a farm or a natural property? If so, we’d love to talk to you about how we might be able to help you achieve your goal! There have NEVER been more options for people who want to preserve their farms or natural properties. The tax benefit for voluntary Conservation Easements was expanded significantly late last year – see the attached fact sheet for more information--click here for the pdf file. We also work with several easement purchase programs and this is the season for thinking about whether you might wish to apply. Call 937-767-9490 or e-mail burns@tecumsehlandtrust.org , and we’ll explain the options available to you!

And if you just plain want to stop sprawl, get in touch. There are so many ways to volunteer and educate – everyone can make a difference, right in their own back yard!
