Over several decades, Dr. Don Ross and his wife Rhoda worked at assembling parcels of farm and forested land at the south end of La Rose Bay on Charleston Lake, and across to Red Horse Lake. TIWLT worked with the family to help craft a conservation agreement that will protect several kilometers of shoreline on both lakes, and very large amounts of many types of habitats, for numerous species at risk. This property is extremely important to not only the ecology of the lakes, but to the survival success of a most significant pocket of biodiversity of this region.

Fund value of $71,800, pledged by the Ross Family Conservation Trust
