How does conserved land benefit you?
Clean Water & Air
Trees and plants are essential to the air we breathe and the water we drink. Forests absorb rainfall and snow melt, and help the soils filter ground water and recharge the aquifers and reservoirs that provide our drinking water.
Places for Wildlife
The Pioneer Valley is home to a rich diversity of wildlife from the largest black bear to the smallest dwarf mussel. Every species needs the right place and space to play its part in the web of life that sustains our region and our planet.
