About MassLand


The mission of the Massachusetts Land Trust Coalition is to advance land conservation throughout Massachusetts.

What We Do

  • We unify, strengthen, and connect over 140 land trusts in Massachusetts to preserve open space, conserve habitat, provide recreational access, protect water quality, promote sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, and engage the community.

  • We are the voice of Massachusetts’ land trusts on policy issues and advocate for strong legislation and innovative funding at the state level.

  • We educate the conservation community and build capacity by providing direct technical assistance, hosting workshops and forums, and organizing the largest state land conservation conference in the country.

  • We facilitate partnerships among conservation entities in order to launch collaborative, high-priority projects on-the-ground.
