Westchester Land Trust

Westchester Land Trust was founded in 1988 by a group of residents of Lewisboro and Bedford who were concerned about the increasing pace of development in their towns, and who wanted to take action to protect environmentally-important open space and the character of their communities.

Today Westchester Land Trust has grown into a truly countywide organization. We have protected land in 28 communities and continue to seek land preservation opportunities throughout the county.

Westchester Land Trust...

  • Protects land in partnership with private property owners
  • Helps communities create new parks and preserves

We work with ...

  • government agencies and local advocates to buy important properties
