The Barrington Land Conservation Trust owns and manages approximately 300 acres of protected land. In addition, our volunteers assist the town in caring for town-owned nature preserves. Many of the Land Trust’s properties have been donated by generous individuals who wished to preserve open space in Barrington. Other properties have been acquired through a combination of government funding, grants and charitable donations.

Our properties fall into three general categories:

Public Access Properties: These properties are open year-round to the public from dawn to dusk. Some have regularly maintained trails, while others are more rustic. 

Limited Access Properties: These properties are accessible to the public only through guided nature walks by a Land Trust volunteer. 

Conservation Only Properties: These properties have been preserved exclusively for their conservation value and are not accessible to the public. They are monitored and maintained by Land Trust volunteers.
