Barnstable Land Trust is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. We rely on the generosity of our members – the people who understand, appreciate and are committed to our mission. All contributions are tax deductible.

In 1983, a small group of caring individuals created Barnstable Land Trust. The goal then was – and still is today – to protect our community’s natural resources by preserving land in perpetuity. BLT is currently the steward of over 1,000 acres.

Land we acquire and protect preserves:

  • our sole source aquifer, Cape Cod’s only source of drinking water;
  • the water quality of sensitive watersheds;
  • community character;
  • critical wildlife habitats;
  • wetlands, forests and meadows;
  • scenic vistas; and,
  • our overall quality of life.

We need you to care and to give.

Your generous support, in concert with others, makes all of our acquisitions possible and increases our ability to preserve the land that protects our natural resources. By supporting BLT you help maintain a balance between conservation and development.

Once the land is gone, it is gone forever…and with it goes the opportunity to protect our vital natural heritage.
