CHESTERLAND, Ohio — Western Reserve Land Conservancy, the state’s largest land trust, became even larger when Grand River Partners officially became part of the 14-county nonprofit organization.

Approval

The merger, which had been approved by both conservancies about five months ago, has been legally recognized by the Ohio Secretary of State’s office. The two organizations had been conducting joint operations since August while Land Conservancy and GRP staff members reviewed issues in need of resolution before the merger.

The merger brings together the region’s largest land trusts. Together, the Land Conservancy and GRP have permanently protected more than 350 properties and more than 21,800 acres.

Changes

In addition, the former GRP headquarters in Painesville will become a Land Conservancy field office. Western Reserve Land Conservancy, which works to protect the scenic beauty, rural character and natural resources of northern Ohio, was formed in 2006 by the merger of eight local land trusts.
