Peconic Land Trust

The Peconic Land Trust conserves Long Island’s working farms, natural lands, and heritage for our communities now and in the future.

Land Conservation Benefits the Community
The Trust’s important work benefits the people and communities of Long Island by helping to protect our area’s scenic beauty and rural heritage. The Trust’s work to conserve these natural resources will have significant impact for generations to come:

  • Working farms: provides fresh, local produce
  • Natural lands and wildlife habitats: provides bio-diversity
  • Wetlands and bays: provides clean and productive water resources
  • Watersheds: provides critical drinking water supplies
  • Walking trails: provide recreational opportunities

Stewardship Enables Our Resources to Thrive
In addition to land protection, we know the importance of stewardship. Trust staff members employ innovative techniques to help farmers, landowners, and municipalities maintain the natural resources of Long Island. Our current stewardship projects include:

  • Shellfisher Preserve , restoration of this historic shellfish farm includes providing seed clams, oysters, and scallops for local bays and preparing the facility for direct sales to local businesses and consumers;
  • Quail Hill Farm, the longest running community-supported organic farm on Long Island;
  • Bridge Gardens, donated to the Trust in 2008, a unique botanical garden in Bridgehamptons
  • Charnews Farm , acquired by the Trust in 2008,
  • Restoration of a 18th century English-style barn in Cutchogue;
  • Replacement of invasive plant species with native varieties;
  • Guardianship of thousands acres of agricultural and natural landscapes

. . . and countless land renewal projects that are restoring natural resources throughout our communities
