GREENWICH LAND TRUST PRESERVES

Today, Greenwich Land Trust permanently protects more than 82 preserves comprising more than 1,012 acres of diverse habitats, located in every part of Greenwich from the tidal marshes of Long Island Sound, to meadows and orchards, and the lush woodlands of the backcountry.

The promise of forever makes land conservation especially meaningful. Keeping land protected in perpetuity for future generations is not easy. It requires an ongoing commitment by our dedicated professional staff and Board of Directors, the sharing of knowledge and expertise through community partnerships and steadfast financial support. As an accredited land trust, Greenwich Land Trust meets the highest national standards for excellence in land conservation, providing an assurance that we can keep the promise to protect our land today and always.
