The pace of land conservation is increasing because of people just like you. Donations made to Opacum, no matter how big or small, are combined to fuel our work.
What is Opacum?
Opacum Land Trust, Inc. is a thirteen town land conservation organization founded by volunteers in 2000 to protect natural and cultural resources in South Central Massachusetts.
These non-renewable resources include:
- Historic and prehistoric sites
- Fertile farmland
- Lush green forests
- River corridors
- Wetlands and watersheds
- Vernal pools
- Scenic vistas
- Habitat for endangered animals and plants
Our aim is to protect the New England charm and rural character of our communities,
promote proactive conservation and the creation of greenways and wildlife corridors.
Opacum Land Trust is able to permanently protect open space through donation
or purchase of land, bargain sales, or by holding a Conservation Restriction.
To accomplish these tasks, your membership and donations are necessary. Please
help us reach our conservation goals and become a member today!
