Our mission: to improve the quality of life for the people of Lowell through the creation, conservation, and preservation of parks, open spaces, and special places.
We are a private non-profit land trust located in the city of Lowell, Massachusetts. Our membership supports projects that provide people opportunities to remain connected to the land on which the city was built.
We do this in several ways: Providing technical assistance to city agencies, local non-profits, businesses, and neighborhoods to support a healthy, diverse urban forest (urban forestry);
Educating people about their current and historic impact on the natural environment (environmental education);
Acquiring and protecting conservation lands where nature is left undisturbed (land protection);
The Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust believes that people can be a positive force toward improving the environment in which they live if they feel a connection and responsibility for the land on which they live.
We believe that the greatest opportunities for making environmental improvements are in the city.
What does "quality of life" mean to you? In order for the Trust to continue its work to improve Lowell's quality of life, we need private financial support beyond that already provided by our 1,000 members. Click Here (PDF) to find out how you can pledge to support the Trust.
