The Trust depends on membership dues to fund some of our ongoing operating costs. But dues alone are not enough to sustain and keep the Trust growing. OCT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and your tax-deductible contributions are vital to our mission of preserving land and educating the public about the importance of conserving our open spaces for future generations.

Your gift funds the work of maintaining and restoring our lands (more than 660 acres), educational programs such as our popular guided walks and speaker series, and most importantly, our continued efforts to identify and acquire land for conservation in perpetuity. Thank you for helping OCT to grow and flourish!

“For us, OCT’s conservation lands provide sanctuaries of solitude and natural beauty where we and many others can take shelter from the fast-paced technological world. Acquiring and maintaining these places in their natural state is an investment we’re happy to support.”
