    Conservation Benefits the Local Economy!

    A study conducted by the Trust for Public Land and reviewed by Clarkson University has found that conserved lands were found to increase the value of nearby residential properties in the Thousand Islands region by $55.9 million and increase property tax revenues by $684,000 per year. These conserved spaces attract visitors to the region, enhance property values, provide recreational opportunities for residents, and boost economic development. By doing so, they also support local jobs, increase spending at local businesses, and generate local sales tax revenue.
