Who we are

What is the Dedham Land Trust?

The Dedham Land Trust is a broad coalition of individuals, town officials, and local businesses who agree that the acquisition and protection of natural land is important if we are to retain and improve the quality of life in Dedham. The Dedham Land Trust operates entirely on a volunteer basis, and we are always looking for others to join us.

The Dedham Land Trust does not engage in partisan political activity and takes no position on zoning matters. Our purpose is to preserve the open spaces in Dedham and protect the scenic, historic and natural character of the town.  We do that by acquiring and managing open land and conservation restrictions, making grants to other conservation organizations and providing financial or other support to initiatives that raise awareness about conservation issues in Dedham.
