GEORGES RIVER LAND TRUST
October 25, 2010

GRLT is a wonderful organization doing important work. Most or all of the people involved in the organization are a real pleasure to know and to deal with. I wholeheartedly support their work. I do however have a couple of suggestions. 1. I know a substantial donor to the Land Trust who was not even given free tickets to the garden tour and was disappointed not to be recognized in that way. Obviously substantial donors should be thanked in that simple way. 2. The process of donating an easement, which i and several friends have explored, is complicated, legalistic, and costs money to the donor beyond the gift of the easement. Donors are also encouraged to open their land to hiking members etc. I think steps should be taken to make this important form of donation as painless as possible, with fewer add-ons besides the donation of the easement itself. While it is understandable that the Land Trust may incur costs maintaining a donated easement, they might get more donations if they covered those costs themselves through fund-raising.

The Great!
