Land plays an essential role in guaranteeing that we have clean water, clean air, and thriving systems of plants and animals. The Trust works throughout the region to help balance growth and development with land conservation.
The public benefit of land conservation provides natural places for children to play, scenic views and green spaces that help improve health and well-being, working farms that sustain us, nature preserves, and historic homes and landscapes. These benefits are important now and for future generations.
Our work includes:
- Conserving land through conservation easements and other transfers of title, and working with landowners throughout the process
- Managing conserved land through active stewardship
- Advocating for the land by working with elected officials and other conservation organizations
