Even when we are no longer walking the earth, the land we lived on – the land we loved – will remain. Including Cardinal Land Conservancy in your estate plans allows you to choose how the land you love will exist for future generations.
Including Cardinal in your estate plans, whether through a monetary gift or a gift of land, you will join the Cardinal Wings Program. Cardinal Wings members will get invited to special programming throughout the year. The programs will allow you to understand the impact your planned gift will have on Cardinal’s mission of preserving and protecting land in Southwest Ohio into perpetuity.

If preserving and protecting the land in Southwest Ohio, the land we love, is important to you, consider leaving a bequest gift to Cardinal. When you include Cardinal in your estate plans, you are choosing clean water, food security, and access to green space are part of your legacy.
