Land protection is fundamental to the Land Trust's local conservation efforts. We hold land and conservation easements, and we partner with other agencies and organizations to support and encourage land protection efforts.
Stewardshipin perpetuity is a big commitment! Staff and volunteers monitor and manage preserves on a regular basis to ensure the long-term conservation value of each property.
Community engagement through education and outreach efforts helps connect people to nature and builds support for conservation efforts.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." --Margaret Mead
