The Acton Conservation Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that can hold permanent conservation easements, accept gifts of land, accept tax-deductible gifts to be used for open space preservation and purchase land for conservation purposes. We also provide education to landowners about various options for preservation. Download the bylaws of the Corporation.

ACT is one of more than 140 such organizations in Massachusetts, and is a member of the Massachusetts Land Trust Coalition and the national Land Trust Alliance.

The Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees of ACT who are elected each year at the Annual Meeting (typically held in March just prior to Acton Town Meeting). The officers of the Trust are elected annually by the Board at that same meeting.
