Thank You for your support of Connemara!

Connemara Conservancy easement Strain Family Farm

Among the more than 6,000 acres protected by Connemara are 121 acres of the Strain Family Farm in Dallas County. For over 100 years the Strain family has farmed this land near Lancaster. Today the family is dedicated to preserving open space as well as the agricultural history, culture and character for future generations.

All of us at the Connemara Conservancy want to thank everyone that made 2016 such a special year for land conservation in North Texas.

Thank you to the many volunteers and students and scouts who participated in various activities in the Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve during the year.

And Thank You to all of those listed below whose generous financial support allows us to pursue our mission of protecting and preserving important tracts of open space throughout North Texas as well as providing conservation education to families and students.

We now protect more than 6,000 acres of open space throughout North Texas. You can Click Here for a look at where Connemara is working.

A $5 donation is all that is needed to help us preserve one acre and if you would like to support this important effort, we invite you to Click Here to make a gift to Connemara.
