Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT) is a non-profit, membership-supported organization formed in 1971 by community members working to preserve the quality of life in Dartmouth. DNRT’s mission is to preserve and protect Dartmouth’s natural resources for people and nature, forever. Over the years, DNRT has helped permanently protect over 5,000 acres of wetlands, wildlife habitat, farmland, forests and scenic landscapes in Dartmouth. DNRT currently owns more than 1,500 acres of conservation land on over 50 Reserves, and maintains over 35 miles of hiking trails.
In 1972, recognizing the vital importance of Westport’s natural resources, and the need for community involvement in preserving them, a group of local residents formed the Westport Land Conservation Trust. Since then, the Land Trust has joined the efforts of various Town and State agencies to help many Westport property owners protect their land in keeping with its simple mission: To acquire and preserve natural resources, farmland and wildlife areas for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations; to preserve and protect historic sites; to educate the public about the wise use of natural resources; and to work with other organizations having similar purpose.
