Short Description
The mission of the Orange County Land Trust is to preserve water resources, critical habitat, rural and urban farmland, scenic viewsheds, and ecosystems in and around Orange County for the benefit of all who depend on them.

The Orange County Land Trust, accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission in 2013, has helped protect nearly 6,500 acres of land through the negotiation of conservation agreements with private landowners, property donations, and the acquisition of private property.

The acreage is comprised of unique meadows, fertile farmlands, stream corridors, wetlands, forests and recreational acres. Many of the properties are open to the public, while others remain private properties with agreements that preclude future development.

Of the properties and preserves open to the public, the land trust organizes frequent hiking and birding activities and has partnered with children and youth organizations in providing educational, conservation-based nature programs.
