The Westerly Land Trust conserves open space, revitalizes culturally significant properties, and provides environmental programs for the enduring benefit of our community. Specific programs include the preservation of open space, rehabilitation and redevelopment of established neighborhoods, and establishment of education and recreation opportunities for the public. The Trust's programs and activities are directed to the protection and enhancement of the environment, agriculture, and water resources as well as the community's 'sense of place.' Westerly is recognized as a place with special charm and attractions which are a source of pride to its residents and a magnet for tourists and new residents. The Trust aims to protect and strengthen that reputation.
The Land Trust Alliance powers our nearly 1,000 member land trusts to permanently protect and conserve the land we need and love, ensuring it will be there for today and tomorrow.
