A private, non-profit membership organization, we are not affiliated with town government, but work closely with our civic partners.

We lead programs in land conservation, outdoor education, stewardship of our natural areas, and advocacy for conservation-oriented public policy. VISION 2020  is our new strategic plan for the next five years.   Learn more about us and the outstanding natural and human communities we serve!
