Madison - Madison Land Conservation Trust

Founded in 1964, the Madison Land Conservation Trust is one of the oldest land trusts in the United States. The Land Trust is a nonprofit organization with an all-volunteer board of directors. Throughout the town of Madison, the Land Trust protects close to 1700 acres of woodlands and wetlands, fragile and vital habitats that might otherwise have been consumed by development. These properties provide residents and school groups with more than 35 miles of trails to enjoy.

Our mission is to conserve the natural resources of the Town of Madison, including woodlands, water resources, animal and plant habitats, and unique historic places, for the benefit, enjoyment, and education of present and future generations.
