Nantucket Land Council

The NLC is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit dedicated to protecting Nantucket’s natural world and rural character by holding and enforcing conservation restrictions, commissioning scientific research, monitoring development proposals, engaging in legal proceedings to protect natural resources, and educating the public on local environmental issues.

Since 1974 the Nantucket Land Council, Inc. has preserved hundreds of acres in the Middle Moors, Plains, Squam and Smooth Hummocks and transferred the land to the Land Bank or Nantucket Conservation Foundation to manage. The NLC was organized specifically to engage in the challenges which sometimes are necessary to defend open space; and, while the NLC takes its ongoing, year-to-year stewardship responsibilities seriously, our long term objective after a property has been protected is to eventually transfer it to antoher organization for management. This allows the NLC to remain focused on its roles in advocacy, education, research, resource protection, planning and monitoring.
