The Trustees own and care for more than 100 special places – 25,000+ acres – across Massachusetts. They're places to relax, pick a strawberry, watch the sun go down, and run the kids around until they’re tired. We’re your partners in protecting the places and experiences that make Massachusetts the place you want to call home.
