Land Conservation

Since its inception, CFPA has been a statewide leader in land protection and management. CFPA is a land trust protecting over 2,000 acres of land across the state through direct ownership and the holding of conservation easements. Our focus is protecting working forests and corridors along the 825-mile Blue-Blazed Hiking Trail System.

Visit our CFPA Protected Properties page to learn more about the land we protect, and visit our Property Management & Forestry page for resources to help with your next project. Thanks for your interest and be sure to check back regularly for updates!
