The Land Trust conserves and preserves Salisbury’s rural character, beautiful landscape, and natural resources through conservation easements and land ownership. We protect more than 3,900 acres of land under conservation easements covering 49 privately-held properties and 17 preserves owned directly by the Salisbury Association.

Exhibits & Programs
Dedicated to conserving land, wildlife habitat, natural resources, and protecting Salisbury’s rural character, the Land Trust actively engages in environmental educational outreach. We mount exhibits at the Academy Building and sponsor nature programs in conjunction with the Scoville Memorial Library and other land trusts.
The Salisbury Association Land Trust is accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, a national organization that recognizes community land trusts that meet strict national quality standards and demonstrate best practices for protecting important natural places and working lands in perpetuity. The Land Trust received its accreditation in 2017.
The Commission renewed the Land Trust’s accredited status in 2023. The process involved extensive documentation and evaluation, proving that the Land Trust meets the highest national standards in land conservation practices.
The Land Trust welcomes volunteers to help monitor private land protected by conservation easements, as well as parcels owned by the Salisbury Association. Volunteers also help create and maintain trails on properties open to the public, control invasive species, and plant native species.
