The NLT Mission

The mission of the Nassau Land Trust (NLT) is to conserve land and preserve Nassau County's heritage for future generations. We work with landowners, communities, and others interested in enhancing and protecting open lands, farms, and natural resources.

NLT is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation that accepts donations of land and conservation easements. We fulfill our mission by reaching out to landowners and facilitating their use of land conservation techniques. We provide creative land-use choices that respect the rights of landowners and reflect their individual goals. We also educate those involved in land use - such as government officials, planners, accountants, and real estate brokers - about the tools of land conservation.

The Nassau Land Trust is pleased to announce that the former Grossmann's Farm in the Village of Malverne is now in its tenth season of operating as a working farm. Thanks to Nassau County, who acquired the farm from the Grossmann family using proceeds from the 2006 Environmental Bond Act, and the Crossroads Farm Committee, comprised of a dedicated group of local residents, nonprofit leaders and NLT Board members, this beloved family farm has once again returned to active agriculture.

The NLT is an affiliate organization to the Peconic Land Trust.
