The Peconic Land Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in 1983 by John v.H. Halsey and a small group of local residents to ensure the protection of Long Island’s working farms, natural lands, and heritage. Since 1983, the Trust has worked diligently with landowners, communities, municipalities, and partner organizations to protect 12,000 acres of land, conserving more working farms on Long Island than any other private conservation organization, and securing millions of dollars from the public and private sector for land protection.

Program areas at Peconic Land Trust

Stewardship manages land, monitors and enforces conservation restrictions on protected property, and provides land management services for landowners. Our Farms for the Future Initiative promotes regional agriculture and local food production including a new farmer incubator program. Stewardship Centers include: Quail Hill Farm, one of the original Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the country; Shellfisher Preserve, an aquaculture facility that provides clams, scallops and oysters for local bays; and Bridge Gardens, a public demonstration garden that highlights non-toxic gardening and landscape management. The Trust annually stewards approximately 4,150 acres of fields, wetlands, woodland and farms. Most preserves provide public access, including miles of walking trails.
Education Educate the public on issues relating to the protection and conservation of land and natural resources. Articulate positions on public policy issues that promote conservation consistent with our mission and values.
Conservation Programs assist farmers and landowners in the identification and implementation of alternatives to outright development through conservation planning. The protection of working farms, natural habitats and ecosystems, historical structures and landscapes, wetlands, and watersheds provide communities with fresh local produce, safe drinking water, cleaner bays, scenic beauty, stronger local economy, and so much more. Projects include acquisitions of land and conservation easements. Important Note: While the value of total assets on Page 1, Part I, Line 20 is substantial, this number primarily reflects the donated value of conservation easements since 1983 that are booked as permanently restricted net assets and are not available for the trust's operating expenses.
