Over the next year we hope to be able to build a fund balance that can help us support the following initiatives at a minimum:

1 – Lease of fencing to help offset costs for protecting live oaks on development sites

2- Supplies to support our fledgling live oaks seedling nursery for propagating native live oaks

3- Purchase of live oak saplings that can be donated to interested persons or businesses who will adopt a live oak and sustain it on their property

4- Help to build a fund for transplanting eligible live oaks threatened with impacts from development activity to new protected locations

5- Pay our annual costs for website registration, State Corporation Commission registration, and other support costs
