The Farmington Land Trust has one mission:
'to protect open space in perpetuity through acquisition, stewardship, education and advocacy.'
The Land Trust has pursued this single goal since its founding in 1971 as a private, non-profit, tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of federal tax code. Support for the Land Trust comes from our members who share our dedication to the preservation of open space.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Land Trust protects 275 acres of fields, forests, scenic vistas, historic sites and wildlife habitat from development. These 63 parcels will remain as open space forever, enriching the quality of life for Farmington residents and visitors for generations to come. We appreciate the commitment of our donors to sustain our mission.
A twelve member Board of Directors elected by its membership at the Annual Meeting in April governs the Land Trust. Current Land Trust members offer invaluable financial and volunteer support for maintaining and preserving the property under the Land Trust’s protection and for acquiring additional open space.
