The Waltham Land Trust’s mission is to create a legacy of land conservation in Waltham by promoting, protecting, restoring, and acquiring open space.

The Land Trust envisions growth in public appreciation of natural resources, preservation and restoration of native habitat, and increased biodiversity to foster a healthier environment.

The Land Trust incorporated in 1999 and became a tax-exempt charity the following year. The Land Trust Board of Directors includes members of the Waltham community from many different fields, including conservation, education, engineering, government, finance, law and technology.

The Waltham Land Trust Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that the Land Trust follows best practices in non-profit governance and provides valuable public benefits in return for its members' investment and tax-deductible contributions. The Waltham Land Trust is a membership organization and the Board is elected each year by the members in good standing at the annual meeting. WLT Board members support the Land Trust by giving their time, talent, and financial support to further WLT's mission.

The Waltham Land Trust is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization in Massachusetts dedicated to preserving open space in Waltham. Incorporated in 1999, the Waltham Land Trust acquired 501(c)(3) charitable status in 2000.
