We recently completed a comprehensive website conversion project for the Buckingham Pond Conservancy, a local membership-based organization in Albany, NY. Their new website can be found at Buckingham Pond Conservancy. The primary goal was to transition from Drupal to WordPress while enhancing the site’s look, functionality and ease of use.

  • Brand New Look: The new site is much more colorful and fun to browse.
  • Integration with CiviCRM: Continued integration with CiviCRM for seamless membership management, donations, and newsletter distribution.

Our Approach

Our team began by understanding the unique requirements of the Buckingham Pond Conservancy. The aim was to keep the site’s original charm intact while upgrading its technology and design. We used the Divi page builder theme, allowing for greater flexibility and ease of updates.

A significant aspect of the project was ensuring the site was mobile-friendly. Given the increasing use of mobile devices, it was crucial that the website performs well across all platforms. We also focused on enhancing the user experience with a streamlined navigation structure and prominent displays for events and organizational updates.

Design Enhancements

The new design is colorful and engaging, reflecting the vibrant community around Buckingham Pond. We prioritized a clean and intuitive layout, making it easy for visitors to find information about events, updates, and how to get involved with the conservancy.
