Over the past 35 years, the QCCA has donated more than $2,000,000 to conservation efforts within a 90-mile radius of the Quad Cities through education, support, sustainable programs and leadership training.
Most of the projects supported were not directly supplied financial support but instead were given the opportunity to request goods and materials needed for environmental and educational programs.
Equipment such as kayaks, GPS units, remote cameras, ATVs, spotting scopes, and even a DC electro shocker have all been donated. Other projects supported by the
QCCA include development of educational facilities and outdoor recreational spaces. These projects not only contribute to helping local, state and federal partners improve their programs but serve to help other organizations such as Living Lands and Waters and the Niabi Zoo to complete their missions.
