Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle:
Your Partner in Rural Conservation
The Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle was formed in 1994 to preserve open space, farmland, and rural landscapes in the three-county region. Our vision is a future for the Eastern Panhandle that includes abundant farmland, greenways, open space, safe drinking water, and the integrity of natural and cultural heritage.
A private, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, the is Land Trust governed by a volunteer board of local residents from Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties. The Land Trust uses techniques that have been successful all over the country, providing landowners flexible and creative legal methods to protect land. The primary method is a perpetual conservation easement.
