Conserving Long Islands Working Farms and Natural Lands

Timeline of Conservation: 1983 to Present

Please take a moment to look back at some milestones in our conservation work since the founding of the Peconic Land Trust in 1983; all of which were made possible by you through your support and dedication to protecting Long Island's working farms, natural lands and heritage.

These are only a few of the more than 400 projects that the Trust has completed with landowners, government agencies, partner organizations, donors and communities. We will update the timeline over time, please bookmark and visit again soon.

All of us at the Peconic Land Trust look forward to working with you to protect what we know and love on Long Island
