The Heritage Land Preservation Trust (HLPT) is an independent nonprofit organization, founded in 1968. They have saved over 600 acres of land, and helped residents and landowners protect and conserve their land, forests, farmlands, ponds and rivers by creating public nature preserves. Their mission is to act as stewards of the land, waterways and wildlife entrusted to us by landowners, in perpetuity; and to engage in and otherwise promote the scientific study of and to educate the public in regard to the preservation of surrounding natural resources.
The HLPT is always in need of the time and expertise of new volunteers.
