Barnstable Land Trust

Barnstable Land Trust (BLT) is a member-supported, not-for-profit organization whose mission is the preservation of land in its natural state in the seven villages of Barnstable, Massachusetts. Our primary activity is the preservation of land in its natural state. BLT believes that as the Town steadily grows, a sustainable natural balance is reached only when open space continues to be protected.

Incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1983, BLT maintains an office in Hyannis, MA. BLT is administered by a 16-member Board of Directors. The Directors, all local citizens, serve overlapping three-year terms, set policy and the annual budget, and oversee the work of a salaried executive director and staff.

BLT protects wetlands, sensitive watershed parcels, forests, wildlife habitat, and other valuable open space. BLT properties are held in a natural state in perpetuity for the benefit of the community and future generations.
