In 2010, The Trust for Public Land worked with the city of Northampton to conserve Bean and Allard Farms along the Mill River, to preserve local farming for the community, and expand recreational opportunities.
In 1986, TPL helped the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture purchase an Agricultural Preservation Restriction to permanently protect this 52-acre farm along the Connecticut River in the town of Montague.
The 410-mile Connecticut River is New England's largest river, draining a 7.2 million-acre watershed that supports fisheries, farmlands, forests, and fresh water in four states: New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Working from more than 30 offices nationwide, The Trust for Public Land offers a range of services to meet the conservation needs of the 21st century. We help communities raise funds, conduct research and planning, acquire and protect land, and design and renovate parks, playgrounds, trails, and gardens.
