|State Legislative Priorities
The Trustees advocates for legislation that supports land conservation and historic preservation, addresses climate change, and furthers natural resource protection. Read more about our priority bills for the 2015-16 legislative session here.
As the nation’s first conservation and preservation trust we care deeply about land conservation. In addition to our state legislative priorities, we are also founding Steering Committee members of the Massachusetts Community Preservation Coalition. At the federal level, we advocate for the Land & Water Conservation Fund, America’s most important federal conservation and recreation program. The Trustees is also represented on the Commonwealth’s Natural Heritage & Endangered Species Advisory Committee which provides the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife with independent scientific advice on the conservation and protection of over 400 species of wild plants and animals that are not hunted, fished or trapped.
