2017 Annual Meeting is Saturday, October 7th at 10:00 am at Alford Town Hall. This year Bridghe McCracken of Helia Native Plants and Design will speak about Creating Bird and Pollinator Habitat with Native Plants. Following the meeting there will be an opportunity to visit her operation on East Road. The Alford Land Trust holds a Conservation Restriction on about 100 acres of her land.

The Alford Land Trust is a nonprofit member organization founded in 2003 by community residents to protect significant natural, agricultural and scenic resources; and to promote and encourage land stewardship for the benefit of the environment, the economy, and future generations.

The map shown here indicates land conserved in Alford as of 2012. Also in 2012, we received a gift of ten acres on West Road from the Schiffman Family.

Our Trust helps preserve Alford’s natural beauty and agrarian character by managing protected land and educating the community about land stewardship. We hope to increase awareness of the connection between land use decisions and quality of life in our region.
