Current Land Protection Projects
Current land protection projects that need your support are listed to the left, above
Each year, the Forest Society works in partnership with landowners, neighbors, donors, grantmaking organizations, partner land trusts, conservation commissions and local and state governments to identify and conserve strategic additions to our network of permanently protected forests, lands and waters.
Bringing new land into our care and stewardship involves a process that includes a determination of whether the mechanism will be a full fee acquisition by the Forest Society or a conservation easement; negotiation of a purchase or donation; a fundraising period to secure support for both near-term costs and long-term stewardship and legal defense; and finally the transfer of title. And then, our stewardship begins, with the drafting and implementation of management plans, annual monitoring of conservation easements, recreational infratructure maintenance and improvements, habitat management and restoration, and, often, timber management.
