What is a Land Trust?

A land trust is a nonprofit organization that works to conserve land by undertaking or assisting in land or conservation easement acquisition, or by its stewardship of such land or easements. Land trusts may protect land through donation and purchase, by working with landowners who wish to donate or sell conservation easements or by acquiring land outright to maintain working farms, forests, wilderness, or for other conservation reasons.

What do we do?

Southington Land Conservation Trust, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 charitable organization under federal tax laws. We are directly involved in conserving land for its natural, recreational, scenic, historical and productive values. Land trusts can purchase land for permanent protection, or they may use one of several other methods: accepting donations of land, cash, securities or other assets to purchase land, accept a bequest, or accept the donation of a conservation easement. A conservation easement permanently limits the type and scope of development that can take place on the land.
