About Us

The Sandwich Conservation Trust is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1985 for the purpose of preserving natural or undeveloped land in the Town of Sandwich, for habitat protection, recreation, and visual beauty.

The Sandwich Conservation Trust is run by a volunteer board of directors, assisted by members who help with projects or serve as property stewards, for example. We are a member of the Land Trust Alliance, a national organization, and of the Cape Cod Compact of Conservation Trusts, a regional group that provides us with technical assistance. We stand ready to help landowners seeking to find the best way to preserve their land. We also work with the Town of Sandwich Conservation Commission and other agencies when needed.
