Northeast Wilderness Trust

The Northeast Wilderness Trust uses various land conservation tools to protect wilderness areas and often works with conservation partners including other land trusts. Depending on the project, these tools may include acquiring land or conservation easements, accepting donated land or easements, or brokering land deals where the parcel in question is be conveyed to public ownership for permanent conservation. The Northeast Wilderness Trust bases its land protection priorities on science, wilderness potential, community vision, threat abatement, and opportunity. The Trust’s geographic purview includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.
