The Ice Age Trail Alliance’s Responsibility
Ensuring the legacy of the Trail requires that we accept responsibility to maintain the land, where the Ice Age Trail Alliance owns the properties, into perpetuity. Accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission recognizes that our organization has the ability, right now, to manage and maintain the properties we hold.
One condition of accreditation is a sustained effort to establish and maintain funding that will permanently cover the costs of property management and maintenance.
What is a Property Monitoring Fund?
The Property Monitoring Fund shall be used to support annual monitoring of Alliance-held property interests including easements, Alliance-owned lands, deed restricted properties and other Alliance property interests. The IATA’s Property Monitoring Fund covers the annual cost of performing monitoring on our property interests, including easements, Alliance-owned land, deed restricted properties and others. We will readjust our costs and add to the fund.
Contributing to the Property Monitoring Fund
Please consider making a pledge to help us establish and maintain the Property Monitoring Fund. With your generosity, the Alliance will acquire additional properties. Your support will protect the Ice Age Trail forever.
