Pound Ridge Land Conservancy

The Pound Ridge Land Conservancy (PRLC) is a private, non-profit corporation,
with the mission of preserving the rural character of Pound Ridge through the acquisition and maintenance of undeveloped land. The Conservancy’s preserves
are kept in their natural state, for aesthetic, ecological and educational purposes.
The preserves are held in perpetuity, i.e. they cannot be sold.

The Pound Ridge land Conservancy is involved in the following activities in
support of its mission:

  • Preserving undeveloped land in town, through encouraging outright
    donation of land and donation of conservation easements (i.e.
    development rights)
  • Stewardship of our current land holdings in town, consisting of 14
    preserves, totaling over 335 acres
  • Conducting community education on the subject of land conservation,
    1) sponsoring student walks,
    2) sponsoring seminars/talks,
    3) getting educational and informative articles published in the Record Review and 4) informing town residents of the choices they have to protect their land
    and preserve our towns ecosystem
  • Identifying strategic parcels of land in town that a) exceed minimum
    zoning requirements and b) contribute to enhancing or maintaining
    the ecosystem, scenic beauty, and rural character of Pound Ridge
  • Encouraging town residents to become members or renew their membership
    in the PRLC. Educated environmental advocates throughout Pound Ridge are essential for achieving the PRLC’s mission.
