Welcome to the Princeton Land Trust Website! 

Our goal with this website is to familiarize our members and friends with what we are and to introduce our guests to the projects, activities, and properties that we are managing.

If you would like to contact us regarding land preservation ideas or on any topic, please visit our contacts page and feel free to contact any of our Trustees. We also welcome you to explore our properties...we hope to drive up recreational use of the land!

Thanks for visiting us!

Our Mission

The Princeton land trust was formed to preserve the natural beauty and rural character of the Town of Princeton;
  • to cooperate with the town, land owners and others in providing suitable places for recreation and for conservation of land, water resources, plants and wildlife;
  • to preserve areas of conservational significance to the town;
  • to promote responsible development of real estate and sound conservation practices in order to preserve the town’s natural beauty; 
  • to acquire by gift, purchase, or otherwise real property and 
  • to use the property in a way the Trustees see fit to carry out our mission for the benefit of the Town of Princeton.
