What will become of the land? As the Valley grows, open land will either be developed or conserved—the choice is ours.

Founded in 1987, the Franklin Land Trust (FLT) works with landowners and communities to conserve farms, woodlands, vistas, historic landscapes, and natural areas that make western Massachusetts a wonderful place to live, work and play.

We have permanently conserved more than 28,000 acres, among them some of western Massachusetts’ signature landscapes: scenic areas along the Mohawk Trail, including Flagg Mountain; the view from the top of Mt. Sugarloaf; the Connecticut River and Deerfield River corridors; Ashfield Town Common; and north and south meadows of Old Deerfield.

Give back to the land that gives you:

  • Fresh water
  • Clean air
  • Fresh, local food
  • Wildlife
  • Beautiful views
  • Places to relax and connect with nature
  • Places to walk, hike, bike, ski & swim
  • Open spaces for our children and grandchildren to play

Support land conservation in your community AND maximize your donation to the Franklin Land Trust.

For every dollar we receive between now and December 10, 2014, a generous donor will match dollar for dollar!

Whatever the size of your gift, you will make a difference in the life of our communities and in our shared future with the land.

Help us save the land before it's too late!
