Whether by purchase, gift, or inheritance, you own part of our sense of place. The Burrillville Land Trust has a number of different options for landowners who want to protect their land. But before you talk with one of us, you should consult your tax attorney, financial advisor or CPA to make sure your decision is the right one for you.
The Burrillville Land Trust is dedicated to maintaining the town’s rural character by preserving open space, protecting the beauty and viability of our farms, and preserving the woodlands, meadows, ponds and rivers around us. History The Burrillville Land Trust was founded in 1999 by a dedicated group of local residents to save and preserve the natural landscape and the ‘sense of place’ in the Town of Burrillville.
Rhode Island is the second most densely populated state in the nation. Our town is one of the last great places in our state where density is minimal and we still have large tracts of land available for development and protection. In the past farming, timber production and raising animals were common everyday activities. But today, our sense of place has changed.
If you are the type of person with a smiling face or a warm embrace and you have a love for the world around you, we want you. Volunteers are the life-blood of our organization. We welcome your help organizing events, maintaining trails, leading a trail walk and more. If you have a specialty in identifying birds, plants or animal tracks, we need you to help conduct a trail walk.
