Barnstable Land Trust

Barnstable Land Trust (BLT) is the only private nonprofit organization dedicated solely to preserving the open spaces and natural resources within the Town of Barnstable on Cape Cod. BLT is supported by generous contributions from the community and from our members.

BLT preserves land that protects wildlife habitat, scenic vistas, sensitive watersheds, wetlands, forests and other valuable open space. Our protected lands are held in their natural state in perpetuity for the benefit of the community and future generations.

Land is acquired through outright gifts, bequests, “bargain sales” (purchases below market value) or neighborhood-driven fundraising and purchase. The land entrusted to our care is managed with the help of volunteers to protect vital resources. Our Walks & Talks Program provides opportunities to learn about local natural resources and connect with the land.
