LAND CONSERVATION AND ADVOCACY TRUST, INC.

The Land Conservation and Advocacy Trust provides legal support, fiscal sponsorship and technical assistance to help preserve open spaces, farm land, historic places and architecture, natural resources, and to promote sustainability and smart-growth ideals that foster these land conservation values. We work closely with land trusts, other stewardship organizations, and on our own initiative so that we can act quickly when other resources are not available to pursue these ideals.

Founded in 2008, LCAT is a non-profit organization based in Massachusetts and works with local conservation and preservation interests throughout the United States.

OUR VISION

The vision is to create a world where anyone, anywhere can emerge into a landscape that is just as much or more alive than they are.

OUR CORE BELIEF

We believe that conservation and preservation of natural and organic spaces is vital to the physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being of individuals and communities and that the human condition and society depend on the ability of every individual to meaningfully and regularly interact with a living landscape. Land conservation, preservation, sustainable practices and use of smart-growth principles are the most effective ways to provide this interaction and to ensure its longevity by safeguarding wildlife habitat, scenic views, wetlands, sensitive watershed parcels, forests, farm land, greenways, and other valuable open spaces from development and permanent loss.

OUR MISSION

The Land Conservation and Advocacy Trust provides legal support, fiscal sponsorship and technical assistance to help preserve open spaces, farm land, historic places and architecture, natural resources, and to promote sustainability and smart-growth ideals that foster these land conservation values. We work closely with land trusts, other stewardship organizations, and on our own initiative so that we can act quickly when other resources are not available to pursue these ideals.
