    Established in 1970, the Roxbury Land Trust is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the community's rural character for generations to come. Today 3,630 acres are conserved as open space under the Trust's stewardship.

    The Roxbury Land Trust is supported through membership dues, employee matching gifts, occasional state and federal grants, foundation grants and charitable contributions. RLT does not receive town, state or federal support on an annual basis.

    It is staffed by Susan Payne, executive director, Kim Norris, associate director, and Jamie Curren, land manager; served by a volunteer board of directors and aided by volunteer effort.
