Groton Conservation Trust

Groton Conservation Trust is a private, non-profit land trust in Groton, Massachusetts. Founded in 1964, our organization acquires, preserves and provides public access to lands with significant conservation value. During the past 50 years the Trust has become the steward of over 40 properties totaling over 1,400 acres, yet it remains an all-volunteer, single-town entity. Over that time, the Trust has grown from accepting simple donations of land such as Fitch-Woods to protecting land through its own limited development projects such as Still Meadow to accepting conservation easements as we did recently for The Conservation Commission on the Walker Property.

Groton is fortunate to have such a concentration of skilled conservationists in its history, and the Trust's success to date simple would not have been possible without their efforts. Today, the Trust is governed by volunteers who possess varied backgrounds, occupations and interests: scientists, engineers, lawyers, communicators, educators, environmentalists, surveyors and outdoor enthusiasts.

In September 2014, the Groton Conservation Trust achieved full land trust accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the national Land Trust Alliance.
