What is a Land Trust?
> A forest trail that winds upward to reveal an unforgettable
> A clear, still pond surrounded by a canopy of autumn colors
> A woodlands in winter, hushed by the silence of newly-fallen snow
Many of the special natural places we treasure could disappear, in coming decades, replaced by unneeded development and unchecked sprawl, if not for the work of a not-for-profit organization called a land trust. Combining the spirit of volunteerism with an appreciation of community, a land trust helps landowners protect their property for future generations to appreciate and enjoy. Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust leads the campaign to preserve the Woodbury area’s special places.
