why give?

Mattapoisett Land Trust is an all-volunteer organization. Most of our funding comes from individual donations, grants, and the events we put on.

We use the money we raise to acquire land for permanent conservation and to care for the land we own. We maintain Dunseith Gardens, Tub Mill, Schoolman Park, and the Munro Waterfront park. We build and maintain trails, perform tree maintenance, and remove invasives at our preserves. And we put on free education programs to connect young people to nature and the outdoors.

Please let us know if you are making a memorial gift. We would like to acknowledge your gift and honor your loved one in the next issue of The Heron.

Thank you for your support

Our mission extends to future generations which makes the MLT an appropriate recipient of gifts to honor or to memorialize your loved ones. We will always acknowledge such gifts in the subsequent issue of The Heron to inform the public of your generosity.
