Preserve and Protect

About the Bridgewater Landtrust

The Bridgewater Land Trust is an organization devoted to safeguarding the rural character, spectacular views, and striking natural beauty of our undeveloped, unspoiled woods, open spaces, wetlands, and farm fields.

Referred to as the last bastion of Olde New England, Bridgewater’s unique quality of life depends on our ongoing combined commitment to take the best of our history and seed it forward to a lush, vibrant future via the crucial elements of an expanding membership, an active board, creative fundraising, and hearty volunteer participation, succeeding in synergy.

Won’t you join us in realizing our natural, sustainable vision?

Our Mission


Preservation of land, nature and lifestyle are the tenets of our mission. Knowledgeable board direction and a committed, engaged membership create the foundation of our thriving organization.


Protecting our collective future and quality of life, we take environmental responsibility for our greatest local natural resource. Guarding your property values and shielding against unchecked development while maintaining the habitats of native flora and fauna are vital factors in our success. With educational and sponsored partnerships, informed lobbying efforts, and nature advocacy, we expand our prospects together.

The wilderness and the idea of wilderness is one of the permanent homes of the human spirit.

Joseph Wood Krutch, writer, critic and naturalist


Caring for the land with high- level ongoing stewardship and up-to-date appropriation of best land-use practices is a joyful priority as we witness the legacy of our rich farming traditions, enviable views, pastoral character and the ever-renewing natural rewards of the idyllic place we call home.


There are so many ways to make a difference. Your land trust thrives with your help.
Why not YOU? Why not NOW?
