For over twenty years, the Charlotte Land Trust has been in the business of conserving the special natural, scenic and agricultural areas in Charlotte so they will be here for future generations.  We were founded by a group of concerned local people who initially organized in order to protect a very large field on the corner of Lake and Greenbush Roads. Since then, CLT became incorporated sixteen years ago as a non-profit entity and has helped to preserve many of our notable natural resources.

CLT’s mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the historic and rural beauty of the area by conserving natural resources in the form of agricultural lands, forests, and wild areas.  We are committed to assisting in the planning for Charlotte’s growth and development so that agricultural, commercial, residential and recreational land needs are balanced by the townspeople’s often expressed desire for the preservation and protection of working farms, natural areas and scenic resources.

To date, Charlotte can be proud that more than 4,000 acres of resource rich lands in the town are conserved with conservation easements.  This slideshow highlights pictures from some of the properties in Charlotte that were conserved either through the efforts of the Charlotte Land Trust or one of our other conservation partners.
