About Us

As one of the last surviving coastal farming communities in Massachusetts, Westport has a unique variety of landscapes, from the East and West Branches of the Westport River to neighboring farmlands, quiet woodlands, pristine beaches, and fertile marshes. All who know Westport appreciate these landscapes and their irreplaceable contribution to the Town’s agricultural heritage, natural beauty, and traditional way of life.


In 1972, recognizing the vital importance of Westport’s natural resources, and the need for community involvement in preserving them, a group of local residents formed the Westport Land Conservation Trust. Since then, the Land Trust has joined the efforts of various Town and State agencies to help many Westport property owners protect their land in keeping with its simple mission:

To acquire and preserve natural resources, farmland and wildlife areas for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations; to preserve and protect historic sites; to educate the public about the wise use of natural resources; and to work with other organizations having similar purpose.
