Barrington Land Conservation Trust
The Barrington Land Conservation Trust is a private, nonprofit organization that works to preserve the town's remaining natural resources and adjacent areas, such as streams, ponds, marshlands, woodlands and other scenic and natural sites. It preserves the land through acquisitions, either by donation or easement; advocacy, and educational programs, such as family walks on trails in larger sites. More than 250 acres of land on 69 properties have been preserved for passive and active recreational use by Barrington's residents. A governing board meets in public five times a year at the Barrington library. There is an annual public meeting each June in the same location. The Land Trust works closely with town officials and the Barrington Conservation Commission.
