What We Do

Since 1972, over 5,000 acres of open space, farmland and wildlife habitat have been permanently protected by WLCT in partnership with the Town of Westport, the Commonwealth and many community partners. Explore here to learn more about the preservation of Westport’s unique rural character.

WLCT’s 50 year track record of protecting land across Westport includes a variety of projects with landowners who have donated land, permanently conserved land with a Conservation Restriction or protected valuable farmland with an Agricultural Preservation Restriction. In addition to protecting land, WLCT owns over 1,600 acres that we steward for public enjoyment and wildlife benefit. We have knowledgeable people ready to help and answer any questions you may have.


Special places don’t stay special on their own. Our dedicated volunteers make sure every one of our destination properties is ready for your next adventure.
