...to preserve the recreational, natural, scenic, historical, and cultural resources of Boone County.
Who we are
Established on October 22, 1999 by local residents and the Boone County Fiscal Court, The Boone Conservancy is fully chartered as a non-profit organization. TBC has received federal tax status as an exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Tax Code.
What we do
The Boone Conservancy will acquire land for purposes of conservation and parks development. The Conservancy will acquire land from voluntary sellers, and does not have the powers of condemnation or eminent domain.
How we acquire land
We purchase it. We also accept property donations from landowners as a community gift. These donations offer tax advantages for landowners and make Boone County a better place to live.
What becomes of the land
The land will either remain in its natural state or be developed as a park. In most cases, the land will be open to the public for hiking, fishing, horseback riding, picnicking, and other recreational activities. The land will also serve as a natural laboratory for local schools and educational events.
