EcoHealth Zoom & Members Advisory Committee

We are having two events on Wednesday, November 10!

First, our Members Advisory Committee will be having its next meeting at 4:00 pm that afternoon. If you are a supporter of Ozark Land Trust and want to interact with Board, staff, landowners or other supporters, join us.

Then at 5:00 pm we are having a Zoom meeting for everyone to discuss the connection between the outdoors and health. We will cover everything from your own personal health and how it benefits from time in nature, to how the health of the Ozarks depends on conservation.

Please contact [email protected] directly for more details on either meeting.

More Land Protected In The Huzzah

Once again, OLT has stepped up to permanently protect lands in the important Huzzah Creek watershed. This extraordinary area is important for its working ranch and farmlands, for its natural beauty and its wonderful floating.

This most recent transaction is the seventh we have completed in the Huzzah watershed. It allows the landowner to retain ownership and helps OLT ensure that the land is protected in perpetuity. We are grateful to our landowner partners, the Yocom family, for their continued work with OLT in both protecting their lands and performing a variety of conservation practices.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, this transaction brings the total of newly protected lands by OLT to over 2,000 acres in the last 24 months alone. We are so grateful to our landowners, agency, and nonprofit partners for continuing the work of permanently protecting lands.

Your Support Is So Important

We couldn’t protect and restore lands across the Ozarks without you!

We ask for your end-of-year support to help make 2022 another great year for conservation. If you prefer to support us online, CLICK HERE TO DONATE.

You can also give through Giving Tuesday on November 30.

However you give, we thank you for protecting our scenic and essential Ozark lands for future generations.
