Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our mission is to protect the natural resources in our region. We have helped to protect the rural character of the towns that we service.

We select properties that meet our criteria as high value open space. We then negotiate with the owners for the gift of the property, a bargain sale, or the purchase of the property. We raise funds to finance the cost of properties through grants from the state and federal governments, grants from private foundations, and contributions from our members and friends.

We have been successful in negotiating a fair price or receiving a donation for most of the properties we have selected for acquisition. We have raised the required funds to complete the purchase our selected projects.

We track the number of acres preserved and publish the list of protected properties annually in our annual report.

To date, we have protected more than 1.500 acres with a value of $6,322,074
