Cornwall Conservation Trust, Inc.

The Cornwall Conservation Trust’s mission is to accept or acquire properties and conservation rights; to manage these holdings in ways that promote farming, forest improvement, water quality, wildlife habitats, recreation and open space, thus assuring that Cornwall’s unique rural and historic character will survive; to work in cooperation with the Town’s land use commissions and various citizens’ groups to advance constructive growth; to educate the people of Cornwall on land use, and to provide them with a means of participating in the conservation of the community’s assets.

The CCT is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of our town's natural assets. It is organized to provide broad public participation in its activities, and membership is open to everyone.

CCT seeks to conserve and protect Cornwall land in a way which reflects the wishes of the community. Of particular interest is land which has scenic, cultural or historic value, significant agricultural or natural worth, or important water resources.

CCT promotes land preservation by conservation easement wherever possible, since this flexible land-use tool permits a variety of applications to suit different circumstances, while leaving the land on the tax rolls.
