The Westbrook Land Conservation Trust acquires, preserves, and actively stewards its own real property - including wetlands and woodlands - to conserve natural resources and promote scientific, educational, and passive recreational uses of open space, all for the benefit of the public. In addition, the Trust supports the town of Westbrook in its endeavors to preserve and educate the public regarding the value of its natural environment.
In 1968, with the donation of a segment of salt marsh on Hammock Road, seen below, the Westbrook Land Conservation Trust was incorporated. Two years ago, we celebrated our 50th anniversary. As of 2020, the Trust has acquired and preserved 32 properties, comprising over 150 acres of diverse habitat. We invite the public to become members of our organization, to engage in our monthly meetings and lend a hand to our ongoing stewarship of properties. Preserving the natural world is more important than ever, especially as our lands are connected with other preserved open spaces to create corridors of wetlands and wildlands.
