Let's be bold, let's save land!

The intense pace of development is putting more lands at risk. Right now, we ask for your help with two important land-saving projects.

We welcome your support for the exciting Red River Valley Preserve Project to preserve sensitive watershed land, protect diverse wildlife species, create a trail as well as establish a new HCT office & learning center.

With your help, we're also raising funds toward the $325,000 Bells Neck Road-Herring River Project for the preservation of 2.87 acres with 1,180 feet of salt marsh shoreline in the Herring River watershed. This property also has 782 feet of road frontage offering motorists, cyclists, joggers, and everyone else who travels this route a welcome view of Cape Cod woodland along the way to and from the Bells Neck Conservation Lands.

You Make a Lasting, Local Difference with HCT

Harwich with its sandy beaches, salty air, and welcoming beauty is a fragile place. We walk, bike, swim, and enjoy the outdoors in a setting that offers diverse natural habitats, a variety of wildlife, and scenic lands to discover.

But our quality of life is at risk from too much development. Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT) is dedicated to saving land as a smart, practical, and necessary endeavor for everyone that cherishes this special corner of the Cape.

By preserving land and restoring habitats with sound stewardship, together we create opportunities to explore the natural world around us.

We invite you to join HCT and make a lasting local difference for land, water, wildlife, friends, and family.
