Founded in 1958, the Grafton Forest Association was established by local Graftonians who had the foresight to see the long term benefits of land conservation. We are now known as the Grafton Land Trust (GLT), and we continue to work closely with landowners, federal, state, and local governments, and other conservation groups to permanently preserve open space and natural ecosystems in Grafton.

Almost 900 acres are now protected in our beautiful community. Despite this great accomplishment, we must all continue our work to ensure that precious land is preserved for future generations. We invite you to use this web site to explore our properties, learn about our activities, and join with us in our efforts to protect the natural environment of Grafton.
