Our Vision

To Preserve Open Spaces for the Benefit of the Community

The Amherst Land Trust exists to preserve open spaces for the benefit of Amherst and surrounding communities, and maintain the rural aesthetic and natural resources of our communities. As our region becomes increasingly suburban, the value of open space, both tangible and intangible, become ever more apparent. Whether for recreation, relaxation, or the protection of the environment, open space is essential to our well-being.
 

The Amherst Land Trust is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a private nonprofit corporation incorporated in the State of New Hampshire. Day-to-day decisions are made by the Board of Trustees. All members have a vote at the Annual Meeting.
 

As a non-governmental agency, we are able to help landowners preserve their land for future generations, while often receiving a tax benefit.
 

Donations to the Amherst Land Trust are beneficial to the environment as well as the donor.
