Hilltown Land Trust

Hilltown Land Trust (HLT) serves thirteen rural towns in western Massachusetts (Ashfield, Chester, Chesterfield, Conway, Cummington, Goshen, Huntington, Middlefield, Plainfield, Westhampton, Williamsburg, Windsor and Worthington). Our mission is to maintain the area’s working farms and forest as a vital part of hilltown life, and to protect the area’s rich ecological resources, species diversity, native habitats, water quality, and unique scenic landscapes.
