Conserve the Valley You Love

19 Towns. One Valley.

One Mission.

Kestrel Land Trust's mission is to conserve and care for forests, farms, and riverways in the Pioneer Valley, while nurturing an enduring love of the land.

The Valley Is Yours: Show You Care


On #GivingTuesday, why should you give back to the land? Because the Valley you love is irreplaceable, unforgettable--and it's YOURS.


Only with your help can Kestrel Land Trust continue to conserve the forests, farms, and other special places that make this region our home.


Join with us for the global day of giving on December 1 and give back to the land you love!
