Our Vision

Care and passion for our natural world inspire, engage, and sustain communities


To conserve and share the Mahoosuc region's important natural lands with our communities, now and for the future


Why conserve land?

  • Create public access for recreation

  • Address climate change by protecting forests that capture carbon

  • Protect watersheds to assure clean water

  • Preserve lands that serve as wildlife corridors and provide habitat in perpetuity


We believe each of us can make a difference in protecting the future of the habitats we all depend on.

Each accredited land trust completes a rigorous review process and joins a network of organizations united by strong ethical practices. To learn more, visit
