Gift Acceptance Policy
Linn County Conservation is continuing to work with valued donors to provide meaningful ways to contribute toward our county parks, trails, natural areas, and conservation education programs at Wickiup Hill Learning Center. Out of concern from the number of tree posts and plaques that have unintentionally impacted the natural aesthetics of our parks over the past several decades, staff has worked on policy changes to where a donation can provide a valuable improvement for the public at large who enjoy our areas for years to come. This new policy will further assist in managing operations costs, maintain park beautification efforts and offer flexibility should park changes need to be made over time.
