About Us

The Truro Conservation Trust (TCT) is a leader in creating public-private land conservation partnerships that sustain Truro as a livable, vibrant community for current and future generations.

Our mission is to help preserve the rural character of the Town of Truro.  This mission is accomplished by acquiring undeveloped land through donation, purchase or conservation restriction.

The TCT has 366.82 acres protected by ownership or conservation restriction.  That includes 197.83 acres of Upland and 168.89 acres of Wetland. The properties are held as Fee Simple Landholdings or Conservation Restrictions. Click here to learn more about our property holdings.
