GIVE BACK to the land that gives us so much!

We are asking you to GIVE BACK to the land that gives you:

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

For 28 years the Franklin Land Trust (FLT) has worked 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.

Today you can GIVE BACK to the land AND maximize your donation to the Franklin Land Trust.

For every dollar we receive between now and midnight on December 10, 2014, our board of director's will match it dollar for dollar up to $10,000!

PLUS every donor will be entered into a raffle to win a Josh Simpson MegaPlanet, free D2R2 registration, Berkshire East Ski Lift tickets, a Nina Coler print and much more!

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.
