About the Hunterdon Land Trust

 The Hunterdon Land Trust was founded in 1996 by a group of volunteers concerned with the negative effects of increasing sprawl and the loss of important natural resources and rural landscapes in Hunterdon County. Thanks to their commitment to the natural beauty and environmental health of the county, the land trust has grown and evolved from its original all-volunteer structure into a professional organization with a staff of six.

As the organization has evolved, so has our role within the community. In addition to preserving over 6,300 acres and being a leader in land preservation, the Hunterdon Land Trust has become an innovative steward of natural resources and a respected community partner supporting local food systems.
