Pollinator Art Show

     TLT will be presenting an exhibition by local and regional artists that will celebrate native plants and insects at The Winds Café during July and August. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, July 16th from 5:00-7:00pm to celebrate the exhibition, which includes experimental ways of working with botanical and insect forms. Also included will be winners from past TLT Sunflower and Pollinator Photo Contests.

    The land trust has been promoting the protection of pollinators through planting and maintaining areas filled with native flowers and grasses that provide food and forage for bees and other pollinating insects critical to the sustainability of our food supply. The work on display will be available for sale; proceeds will go toward the land trust.

For more information, contact Dennie Eagleson, deagleson42@gmail.com.  

TLT Volunteer Training Dates: June 17 10:30 am-noon, Sept. 9 10:30 am-noon

Our volunteers make so many things possible--from writing our newsletter, clearing out invasive plants,

staffing the Sugar Shack Tour,  putting together our auction, and advocating for water and land conservation throughout

the area! Our biggest volunteer need for the year is helping host visitors during sunflower season here on Whitehall farm. 

Refreshments will be provided! If you are interested, email us at sunflower@tecumsehlandtrust.org or call us at 767-9490. 

The office is located at: 4633 US-68, Yellow Springs, Ohio 45387

*There will be a training day in early August for those interested in volunteering in the sunflower field. Date and time TBA.

                                                       The newsletter is here, the newsletter is here!

Thank you Jacoby Creek Preservation Donors! 

Your donations will continue to be held in a segregated fund to be used only for the Jacoby Creek project unless you have told us otherwise. 
We have used some of the money to assist Community Solutions in closing on the property. This is in exchange for conservation easement.
Krista submitted a federal grant preproposal at the end of April that would be for a large area of the Jacoby Creek. We will hear in a couple of months if she should present a full proposal. She has talked to a number of potential partners who are very interested in the 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!

We are still on Whitehall Farm, but we have moved into a 2 story farm house.

Our mailing address is still the same:

Our new street address is:
