The Town acquires land through gifts and by purchase from willing sellers. The Town also can acquire conservation easements (restrictions on use of land agreed to by the owner) and collaborate with private owners on common management goals.
Your gift or bequest can help us preserve additional lands for the enjoyment of future generations. Whether you donate funds to allow us to purchase properties when they become available, or land that can be preserved as Conservation Land, your donation can help us increase open space in the town.
Donating funds is another way to help the Wells Conservation Commission. Your donation can be used to acquire additional lands for the Land Bank, as well as for services such as maintenance, trails, signage, surveying, and so on.
If you’re interested in donating land or funds, either directly or through a bequest, please contact us.
