Thank you to the KLEPS Fund and the Tin Roof Fund of the Homer Foundation for their support of the statewide meeting of Alaskan Land Trusts. Together the Alaskan Land Trust community works to preserve the critical habitats that make Alaska special. These meetings help us to develop long-term strategies and best practices to deal with the perpetual protection of land. This wouldn't be possible without the generous funding from the Homer Foundation. As organizations concerned with the perpetual protection of land, it is important that we meet regularly to ensure that we keep current with best practices in the land conservation community. The funds from the Homer Foundation were matched by other grants, so we are pleased to report that the Homer Foundation dollars went a long way and for a long time.
