The Trustees is Massachusetts’ largest conservation and preservation organization and the nation’s first land trust. Founded by open space visionary Charles Eliot in 1891, we conserve some of the best of Massachusetts’ natural, scenic, and cultural sites for the public to use and enjoy. We’ve held our “reservations” in “trust” for nearly 125 years and believe in protecting the irreplaceable for everyone, forever.

Supported by more than 100,000 members and donors and thousands of volunteers, The Trustees own and manage 113 spectacular reservations – from working farms and historic homesteads and landscaped gardens, to community parks, barrier beaches, mountain vistas and woodland trials – located on more than 26,000 acres throughout the Commonwealth. The largest private farm-land owner in the Commonwealth, The Trustees is committed to building a more sustainable food system through community supported agriculture (CSA) programs, farm stands, livestock operations, pantry donations, “food by prescription” programs, farmer apprenticeship programs, day camps, cooking classes, and community gardens. The organization offers more than 1,000 public programs, workshops, and events annually across the state. For more information, visit: www.thetrustees.org.
