What is a Land Trust?

A land trust is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that works to permanently conserve lands that contribute to a community’s health, well-being, and unique character.  These may include lands with water resources that ensure clean drinking water, rich working lands that have potential to bring locally-sourced food to a community, lands that ensure public access to the coastline or open spaces, historic and/or cultural sites that allow us to connect to our past, or beautiful scenic lands that enrich our emotional and mental well-being.
