Cornwall Conservation Trust, Inc. – West Cornwall, CT
The CCT is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of our town’s natural assets. It is organized to provide broad public participation in its activities, and membership is open to everyone. CCT seeks to conserve and protect Cornwall land in a way which reflects the wishes of the community. Of particular interest is land which has scenic, cultural or historic value, significant agricultural or natural worth, or important water resources.
CCT promotes land preservation by conservation easement wherever possible, since this flexible land-use tool permits a variety of applications to suit different circumstances, while leaving the land on the tax rolls.
The CCT has a two-fold function:
•to accept or acquire properties or conservation rights by gift, purchase or bequest, and
•to manage the Trust’s holdings for farming, forest improvement, wildlife, recreation or open space
