Conserving local farmland, wildlife habitat and scenic landscapes.

Since 1961, Greenbelt has conserved over 15,000 acres and has been responsible for 75% of all Essex County land protected in the last decade. Our focus is the creation of "greenbelts" consisting of river, trail, and other natural corridors, coastal systems and visually intact landscapes.

Greenbelt works to protect all of the benefits of local farms.

Greenbelt works to protect all the benefits of local farms - the bounty they produce, the sense of community they build and our shared agricultural heritage in Essex County. We work one-on-one with farmers to help permanently protect their valuable land from development while encouraging active farming to continue.
