Created in 1987, the East Greenwich Municipal Land Trust was established
The Land Trust seeks to accomplish this by preserving suitable open
spaces for recreation, forestry and wildlife; promoting responsible
development of real estate and sound conservation practices; protecting
environmentally sensitive or threatened existing and /or future fresh-water
well-fields, aquifer recharge areas, and wetlands; and by promoting public
access and views of harbors, ponds, marshes, farmland and forest.
The Land Trust has acquired ownership of lands, conservation easements, and the development rights
of twelve parcels, totaling 314.7 acres. These properties have provided East Greenwich residents with
improved opportunities for passive recreation and general enjoyment of the natural environment by
making trails accessible to the public.
The Town and the Land Trust have been approached by many people offering to sell their property or the
development rights to their property to ensure that their land will be preserved. The Land Trust has also
identified numerous properties that are significant for ecological protection, recreational value, and
historic and agricultural preservation. Together these properties represent at least 500 acres of land that
contribute to the Town's Character.
