For many years, the Stewardship Association of Municipalities (SAM) and our partner organizations have been involved in invaluable conservation projects in every corner of Newfoundland and Labrador. The SAM Conservation Fund allows SAM to continue contributing to the conservation of Newfoundland and Labrador’s environment for future generations. The Conservation Fund, has allowed SAM to establish an endowment fund, whose long-term vision is to grant annual realized equity to eligible applicants who are seeking to undertake wildlife habitat restoration, enhancement and stewardship projects in this province.
