Welcome to BCT!


(BCT) was established in 1983 as a non-profit charitable organization supported by memberships, donations, and grants. Our mission is to preserve open space, natural resources, and the rural character of Brewster and to promote a conservation ethic. BCT owns and has conservation restrictions on more than 200 parcels of land. By the end of 2019, BCT had protected more than 1,300 acres of environmentally important land.

Environmental protection in this day and age requires private/public partnerships and indeed, BCT works very closely with agencies of the town of Brewster. But as the private part of that partnership the BCT needs and appreciates the support of all Brewster residents and friends for our mission displayed above. The following pages will give you information about the open space we have protected, our continued activities in land protection, and how you can participate in this noble effort. Thank you for visiting.

Land trusts are local, state, or regional nonprofit organizations directly involved in protecting land for its natural, recreational, scenic, historical, or productive value. Most land trusts are private, nonprofit corporations. Land trusts are not “trusts” in the legal  sense, and may also be called “conservancies,” “foundations,” or any number of other names descriptive of their purpose.
