Mission

The Northumberland Land Trust is committed to preserving the natural, historical and cultural heritage of Northumberland County.

Our mandate is to establish, maintain and manage protected areas.

As a charity, the Land Trust can

  • accept donations of land
  • fundraise to secure and manage selected properties
  • enter into conservation agreements for the permanent protection of natural landscapes, forests, farms and waterways
  • provide public education and information on land conservation tools.

The Land Trust is governed by a volunteerĀ board of directors representing a cross section of the community including landowners, farmers, business people and professionals.
