Since 1961, Greenbelt has helped landowners, farmers, cities, towns and organizations in Essex County realize their land conservation vision. As a result of our efforts, we have protected nearly 17,000 acres of land in Essex County.

Working in partnership with private and public landholders, Greenbelt offers permanent solutions to realize land conservation goals. Our work also helps to improve air and water quality, preserve fragile ecosystems that are homes to wildlife and plant species, sustain agricultural land to assure a safe, local food supply and protect vulnerable scenic view sheds and open space that contribute to the region’s unique quality of life.
